Silver proof 2oz 2022 Britannia with three ages of woman reverse design.

350 Years of Britannia

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 intended for investors, new annual designs by respected artists offer an element of collectibility. As 2022 marks 350 years since Britannia first featured on British coins, The Royal Mint are offering two special designs this year

2022 Britannia Designs

Most 2022 Britannias feature a one-year-only design by Dan Thorne to the reverse showing a helmeted female figure holding a trident and shield with waves and sunrays in the background within a beaded circle. The legend in the outer ring identifies the date, weight, fineness and metal.

A smaller number of 2022 Britannias feature an exclusive reverse. Inspired by The Three Ages of Woman by Gustav Klimt, Italian sculptor Sandra Deiana's design shows women in different stages of life, facing right, a helmeted Britannia in the centre between a young girl and an older woman.

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