A symbol older than the modern nation of Britain itself, Britannia has stood for two thousand years as a personification of Britons and the British Isles. Her effigy first came to prominence in the latter stages of the Roman Empires reign of Britain. She made her first appearance on a British coin in the 1st Century AD when the famed Emperor Hadrian ruled Rome. Today, she remains a popular, steadfast symbol of the British people. You now have the opportunity to purchase 2021 British Britannia 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals with secure MintID packaging included.

Queen Elizabeth II is found in the obverse design of 2021 British Britannia 1 oz Gold Coins. This effigy of Her Majesty is the fifth-generation design for British coins and sets the Queens portrait against a backdrop of guilloche lines, a feature added to major British bullion coins starting in 2018. In the portrait, the Queen is shown at the age of 89 and wears the George IV State Diadem Crown. Inscriptions on this face of the coin read 100 Pounds, Elizabeth II, and D.G. Reg. F.D.
Britannia is depicted in the center of the reverse design on 2021 British Britannia Gold Coins. Her powerful figure guards the coast of the British Isles. With a trident in her right hand, she can exert control over the seas that separate Britain from the rest of Europe. In her left hand, she clutches an olive branch in hopes of peace, but also holds her shield emblazoned with the Union Jack in preparation to defend the home islands. Inscriptions on this side include 1 oz, 999,9 Fine Gold, Britannia, and 2021.
2021 brings with it four new security features on Royal Mint Britannia Gold Coins. In the background field of the reverse, wavy, textured lines have been added that actually replicate rolling seas as you move the coin around. The same is true of the small security mark to the left of Britannias trident. As you move the coin, the security mark adjusts to display either a trident head or a padlock. There are tincture lines on the Union Jack on Britannias shield and a micro-text engraving on the rim around the immediate design field.
2021 British Britannia 1 oz Gold Coins are available to purchase here in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin is individually packaged inside of a MintID blisterpack.
