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. The tenth ounce is the smallest coin in the bullion range of this classic design. She stands firm against a powerful gale which whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The 2017 design also features a new high security speckled radial sunburst at her back.

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.
