Britannia Investment 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 both proof and bullion finishes.

When these coins were introduced they were aimed specifically at the buoyant international gold market, competing with other one troy ounce precious metal coins like the South African Krugerrand and the Canadian gold Maple Leaf. Britannias offer a variety of benefits for investors but new annual designs by respected artists offer an element of collectibility.

Post-2013 Bullion Britannias

Before 2013, gold Britannias were composed of 22 carat gold. That meant that a pre-2013 one ounce Britannia had a total weight of 34.050 grams and a pure gold content of 31.104 grams. The diameter was 32.69 millimetres.

Britannias issued in 2013 and afterwards have a purer 24 carat gold content. The amount of fine gold remained the same though the total weight of each coin was reduced. Most post-2013 gold Britannias have the same diameter as their earlier counterparts.

Like all Britannias, the 24 carat variety features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse. The reverse is graced with Philip Nathan's classic helmet-wearing standing Britannia, shown holding a trident, a laurel sprig and a shield decorated with the Union Jack.

Why Invest in Britannias?

The major attraction of gold Britannias are their tax-free status. The face value of this coin is £100. As UK legal tender, gold Britannias are exempt from Capital Gains Tax in the UK. Their gold content makes these pieces worth significantly more than their face value and also means they are VAT exempt. 

Britannias allow investors to purchase a significant quantity of gold in a single coin. You would have to buy more than four Sovereigns to get the same amount of gold. Britannias don't have the long history associated with Sovereigns but over the last few decades they’ve established a reputation as one of the worlds premier bullion coins.

Our one ounce gold Britannias are carefully authenticated by our expert staff who ensure that these coins meet the exacting specifications set down by The Royal Mint. Your best value gold Britannia might display minor signs of wear and will be supplied loose, without a presentation box. We can't guarantee what year you will receive and if you order multiple you may find your order contains a range of dates.
