When Britannia first appeared on British coins, the design was so thought to be so eye catching and unusual they were said to have been hoarded for their beauty.

The 2018 Britannia design is by sculptor Anthony Dufort. The design has a contemporary and modern feel, with a cropped portrait displaying only the head and shoulders of Britannia. Both the trident and shield clearly feature and Britannia is seen wearing a Corinthian helmet.

This is available for a limited time only and is subject to availability.
