Britannia is the female personification of Britain and her roots can be traced back to the height of the Roman Empire. When the Roman Empire reached its greatest extent in the Western world, it encompassed all of Western Europe and stretched across the mainland to the British Isles. Once the Romans had conquered as much of Britain as feasible, the new province established under Roman control was known as Britannia.
The image of Britannia would soon feature on provincial currency issued in the isles. During the reign of Emperor Hadrian, coins were issued with an effigy of Britannia on one of the fields. After the fall of Rome, Britannia would not reappear on British coins regularly until 1672 when King Charles II restored her to national currency.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse side of 2021 British Oriental Border Britannia 1 oz Gold Coins. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. The Queens effigy is set against a background field of guilloche visuals. The inscriptions found on this side include 100 Pounds, Elizabeth II, and D.G. Reg. F.D.
Britannia is shown on the reverse face of the 2021 British Oriental Border Britannia Gold Coins. This vision of Britannia was created in 1987 by Philip Nathan for the Britannia Series. It shows Britannia with a Corinthian helmet on her head, trident in her right hand, and a shield with olive branch in her left hand. Inscriptions on this face of the coin read One Ounce 999.9 Fine Gold, Britannia down the vertical shaft of the trident, and 2021 Nathan at the bottom of the design field. The Oriental Border element is featured around the edge of the design field.
The Oriental Border theme shown here is inspired by the British Trade Dollar. The trade dollar was issued by Britain in the late-19th century for use in international transactions in the ports of China and Southeast Asia.
Your 2021 British Oriental Border Britannia 1 oz Gold Coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with an individual protective plastic capsule.
