Following the success of our 2020 Britannia Bullion Collection, as we continue the expansion of our bullion business to Asia, The Royal Mint is excited to release the 2020 Britannia Oriental One Ounce Gold Bullion Coin.


Britannia is one of our flagship coins. The weight and quality of the coins are verified at the Trial of the Pyx. Held amidst the grandeur of Goldsmiths’ Hall in London, it’s one of the oldest and most exacting quality control procedures anywhere in the world. Britannia coins are Capital Gains Tax exempt in the United Kingdom and VAT free in the UK and European Community.

Instantly recognisable, Britannia is a trusted symbol to investors all over the world. Here, Philip Nathan’s classic interpretation of Britannia is flanked by an ornate oriental border, inspired by the Chinese-themed banqueting room at Brighton’s Royal Pavilion. Built for King George IV, it stands as a symbol of the links between east and west.


Gold Bullion has been chosen as an investment by individuals, governments and organisations for thousands of years. In more recent times, people have considered it a hedge against stock market volatility and geopolitical events. With gold more accessible than ever before, could now be the right time to diversify your investment portfolio?


This bullion coin is also available as a one-ounce silver edition.
