Britannia has a longstanding relationship with British coinage. The female embodiment of the nation may have ancient beginnings, first appearing on Roman coins circa AD 119, but she has evolved over time to reflect the nation’s strengths and values. In 1987, this icon was reimagined by sculptor Philip Nathan for a new European bullion coin. The design has endured ever since, winning awards and building a reputation for beauty, quality and reliability. Struck on this one ounce platinum coin, Philip Nathan’s Britannia is as steadfast and beautiful as ever, standing boldly amongst the waves, surrounded by a background of radial lines. To remind us of her naval connections and peaceful spirit, Britannia holds a trident in one hand and an olive branch in the other. 

This modern classic of design has been struck on this bullion coin, which contains an ounce of 999.5 fine platinum. There are also one ounce fine silver and one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions available with four new additional security features.
