Design and Packaging

When you look at the obverse side of this spectacular and utterly elegant coin, you will find the new design of powerful monarch and past historical legend, Queen Elizabeth II for the first time in almost 30 years. Her right-profile image is encircled by engravings that include her name and the face value of the coin in Great Britain Pounds.

For the reverse side of each coin, you will find the image of Britannia. Designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan, this visual persists across all weights and versions of the Britannia bullion coin series, from gold and silver to platinum. These coins also have a Year of the Monkey privy mark on the edge of the coins.
