Just 1,000 of these coins in this Limited Edition Presentation must satisfy collectors of both Britannia and those seeking the best gold coins.

Britannia

Britannia has personified Britain for almost 2,000 years, reimagined time and time again on the coins of the realm, each rendition a new display of her strengths and those of the nation she represents. Collectors all over the world celebrate the captivating coin, eagerly awaiting her latest appearance. Jody Clark’s interpretation is undoubtedly a modern composition, with its crisp lines and dynamic movement in the flowing robes and hair of Britannia, yet he recalls centuries of tradition with some more familiar elements. The lion no stranger to the coins of Britain, lies loyal and tamed at Britannia’s feet – the pairing a display of patriotic strength.

Now you can secure Britannia for your collection as she adorns this splendid Twentieth-Ounce coin. Struck in 999.9 fine gold, this petite, refined coin is perfected in Proof finish and displayed beautifully in sophisticated Royal Mint packaging. Just 1,000 fortunate collectors will be able to secure one of these Limited Edition Presentations – works of art in miniature.

Over time Britannia has come to represent Britain, just like the red, white and blue of the Union Flag, an instantly recognisable image. She has endured on Britain’s coinage for centuries, her powerful presence a much-admired display of the nation’s virtues. And while she has been transformed through the years, representing the character and ambitions of Britain through the symbols that accompany her, her spirit has remained constant and comforting.

It is hardly surprising that Christopher Ironside turned to Britannia for the new 50p when designing coins for decimalisation – a symbol of constancy through such a significant change to everyday life. While Ironside explored and presented other designs (since recognised as fine examples of numismatic art) it was Britannia that was the popular choice. And she remained on the 50p until a new suite of designs for the circulating coinage was won by Matthew Dent in 2008, when his ‘jigsaw-like’ Royal Shield design revitalised the coinage.

What a wonderful Proof Britannia Gold

By Edward,

This is my second 1/20th Gold Britannia. What a beautiful Proof coin! The presentation box, the booklet, and the outer box, are all excellently made and so fine in quality.
Highly recommend it to anyone either starting collecting or giving as a gift. An excellent piece must have in your collection.
