2021 three-coin premium Britannia gold proof set from The Royal Mint, issued in the original presentation box with certificate. The Britannia is the modern troy ounce precious metal coin issued by the UK's Royal Mint and is available in both a bullion finish for investors and a proof finish for coin collectors. First making an appearance in 1987, proof Britannias initially showed Philip Nathan's 'standing Britannia' design but since 2013 they have featured a unique reverse design every year, although a few years before that had one-off engravings. For the first time in 2021, an exclusive portrait and premium portrait proof coin were released by the Mint, giving collectors an opportunity of two 2021 Britannia coins to possess. These premium 2021 editions show PJ Lynch's stunning depiction of the helmeted Britannia on the coins' reverses (tails side), petting the lion with her right hand and propping up her trident and Union Jack shield with her left. On the obverses (heads side), the fifth definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is visible, which was designed by the noted Royal Mint artist Jody Clark. This pre-owned set contains a Half Ounce 2021 Britannia, a Quarter Ounce 2021 Britannia and a Tenth Ounce 2021 Britannia, giving a total gold weight of 0.85 troy ounces. All three coins are struck in 999.9 fine gold and finished to The Royal Mint's proof standard. Only 115 sets were made available in this limited edition presentation, making it a desirable coin set for Britannia collectors.

2021 Britannia Designs

2021 marked the first time The Royal Mint offered two special designs on the proof Britannia: a 'premium' design and an 'exclusive' design.

The premium Britannias feature a one-year-only design by PJ Lynch to the reverse showing her seated, wearing a corinthian helmet, a Union Flag shield at her side along with a trident, symbolising her dominion over the seas. She rests her arm on a maned lion, perched at her feet.

An smaller number of 2021 Britannias feature the exclusive reverse. PJ Lynch is again the artist behind this stunning design, which is a modern version of Britannia. It reflects the changing face of Britain, highlighting how diverse the nation is today.

Both of these engravings are paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II with the face value in the legend.

Buy UK Britannia Coins

The personification of the United Kingdom, Britannia, first appeared on Roman coins, struck during the reign of the Emperor Hadrian. Her image was revived for the coinage of Charles II. Since then, she’s been a feature on the coins of every British monarch, a powerful symbol of national identity. 

Depicted as a warlike goddess, Britannia has starred on her own range of bullion coins since 1987. Initially these coins were just available in gold, with silver and platinum editions issued later, the specifications varying a little over the years. Coins are available individually, in sets and in proof and bullion finishes.

While Britannias are primarily intended for investors, new annual designs on the proof coins by respected artists offer an element of collectability.
