Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength and 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 new addition to a classic range, she stands firm against a powerful gale which whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The 2017 design also features a new modern speckled radial sunburst at her back which offers investors an additional level of security.
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 CGT exempt in the United Kingdom and VAT free in the UK and European Community as a UK currency.
Britannia gold coins are also available as one ounce, half- ounce and tenth-ounce.
