Enthusiasts of the Gold Britannia Series have always recognized the familiar face of the reigning monarch on the obverse. From the first release in 1987 until 2022, Queen Elizabeth II appeared on these coins annually. After her passing in September 2022, The Royal Mint had to introduce a new monarch on these cherished coins. However, the early 2023 issues still honor the late Queen. Now, Provident Metals offers 2023 British Britannia 1/2 oz Gold Coins in certified condition.

Queen Elizabeth II’s passing brought significant changes to the bullion coin market. Countries like Britain, Canada, and Australia began designing new monarch portraits for King Charles III starting in 2023. This marked the first time these coins featured a different monarch.


On the obverse of the 2023 Britannia 1/2 oz Gold Coins, you’ll find the fifth-generation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. She is shown in right-profile relief, wearing the George IV State Diadem. This image, designed by Jody Clark, first appeared on British coins in 2016. Inscriptions on this side read 50 POUNDS, ELIZABETH II, and D.G. REG. F.D.


The reverse design of the 2023 British Britannia Gold Coin features Philip Nathans iconic depiction of Britannia. Created in 1987, it shows Britannia wearing a Corinthian helmet, holding a trident in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Her left hand rests on a shield bearing the Union Jack. The inscriptions read BRITANNIA, 2023, 1/2 OZ, and 999.9 FINE GOLD.


Queen Elizabeth II was England’s longest-reigning monarch. Her reign saw numerous cultural and political changes. As a constitutional monarch, she served as the Head of State for the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth realms, playing a vital symbolic and ceremonial role.


These 2023 1/2 oz British Gold Britannia Coins are graded Mint State 70, meaning they have full, original mint luster with no imperfections. The NGC certifies these coins as among the last 500 2023 Britannias struck by The Royal Mint with Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
