In 2017, The Royal Mint commemorates the 30th year since the Britannia bullion design was first released. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon. In this classic design she stands firm against a powerful gale which whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The 2017 design also features a speckled radial sunburst at her back.
Britannia represents an enduring Bullion investment. The weight and strength of the coins are verified at the centuries-old annual Trial of the Pyx. Britannia coins are CGT exempt in the United Kingdom and VAT free in the UK and European Community as a UK currency.
The Gold Britannia coin is one of the most beautiful coins whether we are talking about the proof or the bullion version. The both versions of the Britannia have been issued every year since 1987
Customers will note the exceptional design artistry of each coin stamped with its purity and one troy ounce of pure gold. This design is quite detailed and denotes the British Royal Mint’s continued product excellence and superior minting. The obverse side of each coin features an elegant profile of Queen Elizabeth II along with inscriptions for her title, the coins face value, and the year.
