The changing face of Britain, on the smallest of the UK’s coins

With a maritime-themed design for 2015

The eagerly anticipated annual release of the Britannia Proof Collection has arrived, with a design for 2015 that nods to Britannia’s nautical heritage. This comprehensive range in fine gold and fine silver includes individual coins, such as the grand Five-Ounce, and exceptional sets of three or six coins, all finished to pristine Proof standard. Britannia coins will be in great demand this year, as they will bear the fifth definitive portrait of The Queen – two British icons united.

About the Coin

Each year, collectors await the release of the latest Britannia design to celebrate this iconic numismatic figure, as only The Royal Mint has the trademark to produce genuine Britannia coins. For 2015, artist and sculptor Antony Dufort has created a stunning maritime-themed rendering of the icon. Struck on the Fortieth-Ounce – the UK’s smallest coin – it is a triumph of minting artistry, a work of art in miniature. Each fine detail of the design has been reduced perfectly by our state-of-the-art technology, and is enhanced even further by our unrivalled Proof finish.

Your coin is presented in a stylish case with a booklet that reveals Britannia’s naval origins and their meaning on famous coins such as the Cartwheel Penny of 1797. A certificate accompanies your purchase, confirming it is just one of 7,500 to be released in this Limited Edition Presentation. An excellent example of The Royal Mint’s craftsmanship, this coin will take a proud place in any collection or make a fine gift to introduce a loved one to the world of coin collecting.
