2001 Britannia Tenth Ounce Gold Proof Coin

2001 Britannia Tenth Ounce Gold Proof Coin Boxed
(VAT Exempt)
Tenth ounce 2001 22-carat gold proof Britannia coin from The Royal Mint. This premium collectors coin is offered in its original presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. This coin features a unique reverse design, used only on Britannias issued in 2001. Designed by Philip Nathan, it shows the female personification of the British Isles wearing a corinthian helmet and holding her traditional trident and shield. She’s accompanied by a lion, an important symbol of strength, often used to represent England. The design reminds us of William Wyon’s famous 1937 ‘Una and the Lion’ gold £5 coin though the style is very different, displaying a modernist edge reminiscent of the work of Percy Metcalfe. Nathan is also the artist behind the classic ‘standing Britannia’ design used on most UK Britannias. The obverse shows Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth definitive coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This pre-owned fractional coin is struck in 3.14 grams of 91.67% gold with a proof finish and measures 16.50 millimetres in diameter. The face value is Ten Pounds. 3,500 of these 1/10oz coins were issued with 1,000 included in 4-coin Britannia sets issued in 2001.
