This coin was first launched in 1987.

The Britannia figure personifies the U.K. She symbolizes strength and is a familiar presence – a graceful sentinel on the shoreline.

The coins that bear her image are symbolic as well, representing the British minting heritage to the world’s investors.

In 2018, a new guilloche background and design was featured on the coin’s obverse. Struck in 999.9 fine gold, the Britannia is UK legal tender with the UK Government assurance of weight and purity. Unlimited mintage.

New Security Features

The 2021 Gold Britannia’s new features offer far more than mere decoration. The new micro-text that borders the design, “DECUS ET TUTAMEN,” literally translates to AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD. The other new security features include:

  • In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, is a trident to represent
    her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, representing the coin’s secure nature.
  • Surface animation the replaces a standard background, reflecting the movement of waves
  • Fine details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted with tincture lines
