Today, you have the opportunity to buy the 2020 British Britannia 1/10 oz Gold Coin online at Provident Metals.
Britannia has a long history on the coins issued in the British Isles and just might be one of the oldest coin designs in use on a regular basis today. Britannia first appeared on Roman coins issued in the British Isles during the reign of Emperor Hadrian. King Charles II of England restored Britannia to English coinage in 1672 and her appearance on coinage has been steady in the centuries since through the reign of various British monarchs. It was no surprise her figure would be chosen in 1987 for the debut of a national gold bullion coin series.
On the obverse of 2020 British Britannia 1/10 oz Gold Coins, you will find the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created by Jody Clark for the Royal Mint of England in 2015 as the fifth-generation design. It depicts the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the impressive George IV State Diadem Crown, a crown that includes a total of 1,333 diamonds in its design that weigh more than 300 karats. Inscriptions on this face of the coin include 10 Pounds, Elizabeth II, and D.G. Reg F.D. The latter engraving is a shortening of the Latin phrase Dei Gratia Regina, which means By The Grace of God, Queen.
The reverse field of 2020 British Britannia 1/10 oz Gold Coins includes the Philip Nathan design of Britannia. This modern design of Britannia strikes a powerful chord as it shows Britannia not just as a personification of England and Britons, but as a defender of the nation. She stands in the midst of the storm at the coast ready to defend with a trident in one hand and a shield in the other.
British Britannia Gold Coins debuted in 1987 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. In 2013, 5 oz and 1/20 oz options were added and the gold content was increased to 24-karat gold. In 1997, the British Britannia Silver Coin debuted, with a British Britannia Platinum Coin added in 2018.
These 2020 British Britannia 1/10 oz Gold Coins are available individually inside of protective plastic flips or in mint tubes for multiples of 25 coins. All specimens are Brilliant Uncirculated coins.
