In 2017, The Royal Mint commemorates the 30th year since the Britannia bullion design was first released. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In this classic design she stands as a figure of resilience and strength, firm against a powerful gale which whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The 2017 design also features a redesigned new high security radial sunburst at her back which modernises this iconic coin.
Britannia represents an enduring Bullion investment. The weight and strength of the coins are verified at the centuries-old annual Trial of the Pyx. Britannia coins are exempt from UK capital gains tax for UK residents.
