Britannia has a long-standing 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 Britain’s strengths and values. The 2024 Britannia continues to define security in the bullion market as she appears on a coin that has four groundbreaking features. Surface animation reflects the flow of waves as the coin is moved in background for Britannia; between this and the banding of the coin, you will find micro-text with the wording ‘DECUS ET TUTAMEN’, which translates as ‘An ornament and a safeguard’ and describes the features that both decorate and protect the coin. A latent feature in the lower left-hand segment of the coin switches between a trident and a padlock based on the viewer’s perspective, which emphasises her naval strength and the coin’s safe nature. Tincture lines carefully highlighted details such as the Union flag on Britannia’s shield and combined, the advanced features make one of the coin one of the most visually secure in the world.
The coin is also available as a tenth-ounce fine platinum edition alongside various gold and silver editions that each include these four advanced security features.
