What more British an icon could there be? Britannia, the changing face of Britain for almost 2,000 years, reimagined by a British artist, his design approved by the Queen, perfected by some of the best UK craftspeople and struck by The Royal Mint. From 2013 the  Britannia range will showcase the best British artists, the design changing each year. And the coins will be struck in our finest gold ever – this five-coin set of golden Britannia Proof coins is the very pinnacle of the range.

From 2013 Britannia Proof coins, struck exclusively for collectors, will bear a new design year on year, created by a prestigious British artist. Robert Hunt, an esteemed portrait sculptor, is the Britannia artist for 2013, and his seemingly traditional seated Britannia, robed and with helmet and trident, has a modern edge. She turns to listen to the world, open and wise – signified by the owl of wisdom.

The definitive Britannia gold set

This is a landmark year for Britannia – and for the Britannia collector, British enthusiast or connoisseur of gold. Not only are these the first coins in a new series, they are struck in purer precious metals and new denominations have been authorised. The delicate twentieth-ounce coin is a treasure in miniature, while the classic one ounce coin celebrates every nuance of Robert Hunt’s design. This comprehensive and beautiful collection also includes the tenth-ounce, quarter-ounce, half-ounce and one ounce coins – five gold coins together make a wonderful way to appreciate the beauty of the design.

Britannia was coined by the Romans, first appearing almost 2,000 years ago on the coins of Emperor Hadrian. She reappeared on the farthings and halfpennies of Charles II – and from 1672 she has graced the coins of every British monarch. In 1987 the Britannia coin was launched, and from 2013 the Britannia range evolves: bullion coins will always bear the original standing Britannia design by Philip Nathan.

But for collectors, this glorious five-coin set in our finest ever .9999 fine gold is the ultimate celebration of a new chapter in the history of one of Britain’s most important  coins – sister to the Sovereign, of course, and every bit as desirable. You will want to secure your set as soon as possible, for only 250 sets will be available in this important year of firsts.
