2023 Gold Proof Six Coin Premium Britannia Set

BR23G6S 2023 Gold Proof Six Coin Premium Britannia Set Boxed
£5,125.00
(VAT Exempt)
From a limited edition of just 175: collectable six-coin 2023 gold proof Britannia set available at a great price, one of the first proof Britannias to feature the new portrait of King Charles III on the obverse by Martin Jennings. Although mostly sold as a bullion coin to precious metal investors, the ever-popular Britannia is available in proof editions for coin collectors. Like the more recent editions, these UK coins have unique reverses which are only to be found on the 2023 version. It’s the work of Jonathan Olliffe, who takes inspiration from Britannia's role as a defender of our shores. The chariot motif has been used on coins in this sought-after series before but Olliffe's design deviates from the usual equine subject matter, rendering the warrior goddesses' horses as scaled seahorses, rearing above the waves. Six gold proof coins make up this set: a 1oz, a 1/2oz, a 1/4oz, a 1/10oz, a 1/20oz and a 1/40oz, giving a combined fine gold weight of 1.925 troy ounces. In contrast to earlier editions of the Britannia, these coins are struck using 0.9999 fine gold (24 carat). During the production process, the Britannias are struck several times using hand-polished dies, giving the coins an appealing contrast between the frosted devices and mirrored surfaces. Included with the varnished wooden presentation box are protective coin capsules and a numbered certificate of authenticity. Exempt for Capital Gains Tax and VAT for UK residents.

The gold Britannia range was officially released by The Royal Mint in 1987, with the silver edition following in 1997 and the first platinum version appearing in 2007. Although primarily a vehicle for gold bullion investment, the gold Britannia has also been struck to proof standard for the collector's market. Every year, the Britannia is released in proof sets, with the composition and style of the coins varying from year to year. Initially, they were struck using 22 carat (0.9167 fine) gold, but switched over to 0.9999 fine (24 carat) in 2013. From 1987 to 1989, the coins were alloyed with copper, giving them an attractive rose gold hue, and between 1990 and 2012 they were alloyed with silver, giving a brilliant yellow gold appearance. Some of these older sets have low mintages and can be purchased at competitive prices compared to more recent issues. Nowadays, the trend from the Mint is to keep the design on the bullion coins constant, with the proof editions featuring a unique reverse every year, enhancing the appeal the proof coins have to collectors.
