2010 Britannia Reverse Design By Susie Zamit
2010 Britannias feature a one-year-only design by portrait sculptor, Suzie Zamit, featuring a bust inside a central circle. Speaking about her design, Zamit said:
'Britannia is a really important British icon and I wanted to create a design that represents her as a symbol of British liberties and democracy. I felt it was important to portray Britannia as strong - almost Amazonian - and courageous, but not overly warlike, more peaceful and protective'
Her 2010 Britannia shows the goddess facing right, wearing an elaborate Corinthian helmet, decorated with a roaring lion. Her hair and classical robes flow in a gentle coastal breeze. Olive leaves around the date at the base of the coin are a nod to Britannia's role as a peaceful defender of our shores.
The legend, displayed in the outer ring of the design reads 'BRITANNIA' with the date below and the weight and composition to the right.
