The History of the Britannia Coin 

The Britannia coin has a storied history that spans centuries, making it an enduring symbol of British identity and heritage. Britannia’s likeness has graced British coins since the time of the Roman Emperors, when she was depicted as a symbol of their conquest of new territories. As the Romans colonised Britain, Britannia became an emblem of resistance against the invaders, often portrayed in ancient British war attire. 

During the reign of Charles II (1630 to 1685), Britannia appeared on copper coins, signifying the significance of British naval power. In 1797, she reappeared on the “cartwheel pennies” and two-penny coins, minted during King George III’s rule. These substantial coins, weighing an ounce with a diameter of 36mm, featured Britannia holding a trident while seated amidst ocean waves, a representation of her as the Queen of the Seas. 

Britannia continued to adorn bronze coins until the decimalisation of British currency. Today, she remains an iconic figure, gracing the British 50 pence coin, as well as silver and gold bullion coins. The Britannia coin’s rich history and enduring appeal make it a sought-after investment in the UK’s numismatic landscape. 

About the 1 oz Britannia 2014 – 2021

The 1 oz Gold Britannia stands as an iconic emblem of British numismatic excellence. First introduced in 1987, it swiftly gained recognition as a formidable counterpart to renowned gold bullion coins like the South African Krugerrand, Chinese Panda, and Canadian Maple Leaf, which entered the market a few years prior. 

Distinguished by its exceptional purity, the 1 oz Britannia boasts 24-carat gold, equivalent to 99.9999% fine gold, placing it among the purest gold coins globally. Its design has largely endured since the late 1980s, featuring Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the iconic Britannia figure, designed by Philip Nathan in 1987, on the reverse. 

The Britannia coin weighs 31.104g, with a diameter of 32.69mm, a thickness of 3mm, and a milled edge. While its face value is £100, its true worth far surpasses this, given its high gold content. Importantly, the 1 oz Gold Britannia is exempt from capital gains tax, and all coins are officially verified, ensuring their authenticity and quality.
