Britannia Gold Coin and Bar Range | Royal Mint Bullion

Britannia Gold Coins & Bars

Britannia, the female representation of Britain and the modern face of Bullion since 1987. Britannia has a long history with Britain and its coinage, she is the embodiment of the nation having represented the country for almost 2,000 years, ever since the Romans invaded the isles and claimed them as the province of Britannia. She first appeared on the Roman coins of Emperor Hadrian circa AD 119 and was revived for the coinage of Charles II in 1672.

First struck in 1987, the Britannia gold coin became an instant classic – today it marks one of the flagship coins of The Royal Mint. Philip Nathan’s craftsmanship reimagined an instantly recognisable icon. His Britannia gold coin design is commanding and powerful, yet feminine, peaceful and elegant. She still endures 30 years later.

Britannia gold coins are renowned for their beauty and reliability, with their weight and quality verified at the centuries-old annual Trial of the Pyx. Gold Britannia coins are VAT free for non VAT registered private individuals and UK capital gains tax free for UK residents only, due to being legal tender.

The latest addition to The Royal Mint's Britannia gold coin and bar range is the 1 oz Britannia gold bar, featuring a design by The Royal Mint's coin design team that aims to symbolise the relationship between Britannia and The Royal Mint. Our Britannia gold coins and bars qualify from free UK delivery or alternatively, they can all be stored in The Royal Mint's dedicated on-site storage facility, The Vault®.
