The iconic Britannia returns, a flagship coin of The Royal Mint that celebrates the very spirit of Britain. Britannia is glorious in five ounces of 999 fine gold, finished to our unequalled Proof standard that highlights her refined grace and elegance. Housed in a sophisticated Royal Mint case, this impressive coin is accompanied by a rousing booklet on Britannia’s past and present designs and a certificate confirming its Limited Edition Presentation of only 50.

Britannia

Since her introduction on the Roman coins of Emperor Hadrian circa AD 119 Britannia has personified Britain, transformed through time by artists who have captured the very essence of the icon, and the trials and triumphs of Britain itself – she is the changing face of Britain. Over time Britannia coins have become a showcase for fine British art and in 2013 featured a design by sculptor Robert Hunt FRBS. For 2014 a contemporary design by one of The Royal Mint’s talented engravers, Jody Clark, continues Britannia’s journey.

In this beautifully balanced composition Jody has placed Britannia among the symbols that have come to characterise her, such as the shield and trident. At Britannia’s feet lies the lion, loyal and regal, recalling numismatic treasures such as the renowned Una and the Lion £5 crown by William Wyon RA, another of Britannia’s creators. This wonderful design is simply stunning when struck as a majestic Five-Ounce coin, its refined details highlighted by our Proof finish. Collectors should act quickly for only 50 coins will be released in this Limited Edition Presentation.
