Gold Britannia and Silver Britannia Coins | The Royal Mint

2017 Britannia

Britannia is the female personification of Britain, embodying the changing ideals and values of the country throughout history. Her journey began 2,000 years ago, when the name Britannia was given to the country by the invading Romans. It was under the Emperor Hadrian that she was brought to life, appearing on his bronze coins, the symbol of a conquered colony.

Throughout shifts in art and politics, technology and popular culture, Britannia has been an enduring symbol of the nation, reflecting the spirit of heritage, strength and progress. She has provided different meaning throughout the ages, from the identity of ‘Queen of The Seas’ in the eighteenth century, to being associated with all things fashionable in the 1990s during the ‘Cool Britannia’ phase.

In 1987 The Royal Mint introduced a new Britannia bullion coin to the international market that would instantly stand out and represent Britain overseas. Three decades later, as we mark the 30th anniversary of the gold Britannia coin and the 20th anniversary of the silver Britannia coin, they are recognised across the world as symbols of quality and beauty.

For 2017 The Royal Mint sought out young talent from Britain’s fine art universities to design a truly modern Britannia. Louis Tamlyn, a student at Central Saint Martins in London, was chosen. Louis brings a unique perspective and passion for detail to the design.

Marking two important moments in one year, each coin in the Proof range features a special anniversary trident mint mark, struck for 2017 only, as the story of the Britannia coin continues to evolve.
