1/10oz 22 Carat 91.67% .9167 Gold Britannias 1987-2012 (Best Value)

One Tenth 22ct Gold Britannia
from
£180.06
(VAT Exempt)
Pre-2013 gold 1/10 ounce mixed-year Britannias with our lowest margin. These Royal Mint bullion coins were first issued in 1987 and have always born an image of Britannia: the female personification of the British Isles on their reverse. She’s most commonly seen standing, holding a shield and trident in a classic design by Philip Nathan, the composition of the coin around her: ‘1/10 · OUNCE · FINE · GOLD · BRITANNIA’ and the date. This is paired with portrait of Queen Elizabeth II to the obverse alongside the face value: £10 / Ten Pound for tenth ounce coins. Gold Britannias minted until 2012 were composed of 22 carat gold. This was increased in 2013 to 24 carat (0.9999 fine) gold. Pre-2013 Britannias contain the same amount of pure gold as their later counterparts but weigh a little more overall. The diameter is the same: 16.50 millimetres for these fractional bullion coins. We’ll select your 1/10oz gold Britannia from our current stock of these coins: all authenticated and carefully weighed by our expert staff. You may receive any date from 1987 to 2012 but all contain 3.11 grams of pure gold (0.1 troy ounces). All are Capital Gains Tax exempt as UK legal tender and VAT free as investment grade gold.

1/10oz gold bullion Britannias, dated 1987 to 2012.

Britannia Bullion Coins

Introduced in 1987, Britannias have been a staple of the global bullion market for decades now. Their reverse design has changed over the years but always features Britannia, the female personification of the United Kingdom. She first appeared on British coins back in Roman times and now rules over her own extensive coinage range.

Britannias are today available in gold, silver and platinum as well as a variety of sizes though the specifications have changed slightly over the years. Gold Britannias minted between 1987 and 2012 were composed of 22 carat gold but this was increased to 24 carat from 2013. Both old and new contain the same amount of fine gold but the older have a slightly higher total weight.

Gold Tenth Ounce

1/10oz Gold Britannias have been offered by the Royal Mint since the range launched. For most of the years since they have featured a classic design by Philip Nathan, referred to as the 'standing Britannia'.

Nathan's design shows a helmeted female figure, holding a trident and shield, her dress whipped by a strong wind. The composition appears around the figure: '1/10 · OUNCE · FINE · GOLD · BRITANNIA' followed by the date. The designs do vary in some years but this is the most common.

Invariably, the image of Britannia is paired with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The obverse flags the face value of these bullion coins, reading: 'ELIZABETH · II · D · G REG · FID · DEF’ with ‘· 10 POUNDS ·' below.

Low Premium Bullion

These tenth ounce coins are composed of 22 carat (.916) fine gold and have a pure gold content of 3.11 grams or 0.1 troy ounces. They measure 16.50 millimetres in diameter.

You'll receive our choice of year, depending on our available stock. Each coin is carefully authenticated by our expert team to ensure it contains the correct amount of gold. They are supplied in a plastic slip or capsule without any additional official Royal Mint packaging.

As UK legal tender these coins are exempt from Capital Gains Tax and, as investment gold, they're also free from VAT. They’re a great addition to your stack if you're looking for affordable fractional issues with a classic design.
