Britannia has enjoyed a relationship with the coins of the United Kingdom for almost 2,000 years. The feminine personification of Britain, she is renowned for her beauty and over time, Britannia coins have become a showcase for British artists, with many eager to share their interpretation of the enduring icon. No collection is complete without its Britannia, for she has been in demand for centuries, and in a year where the numismatic great regains her place on the circulating coinage of the United Kingdom, the spotlight shines on the familiar and much-loved figure.
Antony Dufort has turned to traditional nautical elements for his elegant interpretation, but gives a modern feel to his design, proving once more that Britannia’s history can combine with contemporary design, to stunning effect. The Britannia Collection offers an excellent choice, with a wide range of sets and individual coins to choose from – all struck in fine gold and fine silver and all finished to pristine Proof standard.
