1999 Britannia Tenth Ounce Gold Proof Coin

1999 Britannia Tenth Ounce Gold Proof Coin Boxed
from
£205.00
(VAT Exempt)
This pre-owned 1999 tenth ounce gold proof Britannia has a limited edition presentation of just 1,058. In contrast to the more recent releases of the proof Britannias, this edition features Philip Nathan’s classic ‘Standing Britannia’ design which first appeared in 1987. Nathan’s design has become an icon of The Royal Mint, with the reverse showing a helmeted Britannia holding a trident, shield and olive branch: both warrior, defender and peacemaker. This memorable engraving is paired with Ian Rank-Broadley’s portrait of Elizabeth II on the obverse, which is the fourth official coin engraving of The Queen to appear on British coinage. Unlike Britannias issued after 2012, this 1999 Britannia is composed of 22 parts gold out of 24, with the other 2 parts being silver. This gives the 1/10oz gold coin a total weight of 3.41 grams, measuring 16.50 millimetres in diameter. As UK Pound Sterling currency with a legal tender value of £10 / Ten Pounds, this Royal Mint collectable coin is exempt from capital gains tax, with the added bonus of also being VAT free. It's struck numerous times using hand-polished dies to give a top-quality proof finish, which is perfect for coin collectors. This pre-owned coin is issued in the original wooden presentation case from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Our price includes free delivery to UK addresses.

Buying Gold Proof Royal Mint Britannias

Britannias are British precious metal coins, first offered by The Royal Mint in 1987. Today, Britannias come in a range of weights - from a massive 10 kilo coin to a tiny 1/40 ounce piece - as well as a variety of metals. Although primarily a bullion coin, a small number of proof examples and proof sets are also released each year. The first proof Britannias had Philip Nathan's standing Britannia design on the reverse, but now the design changes with each year: following the Britannia theme but incorporating new symbolic details. In contrast, bullion Britannias nowadays feature the same reverse design first seen on the first editions, although one-off designs have been issued for certain years.
