Britannia Gold 1 oz Coin
This is a new design from The Royal Mint that incorporates an oriental motif for the border that is inspired by designs found in Buckingham Palace.
The border surrounds “Britannia,” the personified of the U.K. She symbolizes strength and is a familiar presence – a graceful sentinel on the shoreline. This is the same Britannia that is depicted on the Gold Britannia coin.
In 2018, a new guilloche background and design began being featured on the obverse. Struck in 999.9 fine gold, the Britannia is UK legal tender with the UK Government assurance of weight and purity.
