Steadfast and confident, Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength. The Royal Mint responded to a renewed appetite for traditional investments and a growing global bullion market, introducing a bullion portfolio in 1987.

In 2017, The Royal Mint commemorates the 30th year since Britannia’s bullion design was launched to market. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In these brand new additions to the bullion collection, she stands firm against a powerful gale whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The newest design features a radial sunburst at her back.

In 2017 the Gold Britannia coin celebrates its 30th anniversary. To celebrate this significant milestone, the 2017 Britannia design has been refreshed with a new high security radial sunburst background, modernising this iconic coin.

Britannia gold coins are also available as a one ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce coin.
