Can there be a more popular British image than Britannia?

 

The beautiful and majestic female figure, holding a trident and a shield of English flag, has been a resounding symbol of the British Empire for many centuries Mints of the 2021 1 Oz British Gold Britannia Coin carry with the vast and rich history of Great Britain, featuring the famous Britannia on one side and Queen Elizabeth II on the other.   

 

This line of coins has been released continually for 1987, making it one of the oldest annual releases in the world.

 

Its yearly editions garner significant attention from bullion collectors. Both the history and backing of the British Royal Mint and the design of the coin itself continue to draw investors and bullion collectors from all over the world.

Part of the appeal of any coin coming out of the British Royal Mint is the iconic history of the mint itself.

 

The Royal Mint was founded over a thousand years ago; its Wardens of the Mint have included famous scientist Isaac Newton. Each coin produced by the mint is completely backed by the Royal British government, including Queen Elizabeth II herself.   

 

The reverse side of this coin features Britannia. Britannia means ‘Britain’ in Latin, and is generally depicted as a woman carrying both a trident and a shield bearing the flag of Great Britain. The intricate design of this coin shows off the texture of her flowing dress in the wind as she gestures proudly with her weapon. Britannia has been a favorite symbol for the majesty, pride, and history of Great Britain since as early the first century BC; the image has remained the primary female representation of the country for nearly two millennia!   

 

Another unmatched symbol for the country of Great Britain, the obverse side of the 2021 1 Oz British Gold Britannia Coin shows off the likeness of Queen Elizabeth II. It also lists the mint details, face value (100 GBP), and the Queen’s name. The coin has maintained this design for over thirty years of constant annual release.   

 

Although the coin has remained in constant production for decades, 2013 saw an increase to its gold purity from .9167 to .9999. This change is important for collectors who have followed the editions closely. Its collectability is a major drawing point, and many collectors appreciate its relatively high face value, as well as its backing by Queen Elizabeth and the British government.   

 

Collectors can tap into the rich and vital history of Great Britain with the 2021 1 Oz Gold Britannia Coin. Its imagery includes both the present Queen and Britannia, the female personification of the long-lasting country and its cultural significance.

 

The latest of a series consistently released since 1987 by the oldest mint in the world, this coin is an excellent addition to any collection.
