Design gold Britannia coin

Golden Britannia coin

Britannia, designed by Philip Nathan, is depicted on the gold Britannia coins. Britannia has a long history with the United Kingdom and its coins. For more than 2,000 years, Britannia has been a symbol of the country of England, since the invasion from the Roman Empire.
Britannia was first used on coins of Roman Emperor Hadrian around AD 199 and her likeness was found on coins issued under the reign of Charles II in 1672. Since this re-introduction to the coin, she has never been removed from it.

More information

The term "Britannia" (Latin for Britain) dates back to the time of the Roman occupation of large parts of Great Britain (c. 50 BC). In worship of the country's feminine personality, it was worshiped as a deity under the name of "Britannia". Since then, the symbolic, warlike female figure in armor has been synonymous with the country's patriotism. This designation has been used for centuries not only for ship and company names, but also for precious metal and commemorative coins.
Britannia remains a symbol of strength and progression. She has a reassuring familiar presence, who is always on guard on the shore despite the constant changes. Britannia is a national icon and the coins bearing her symbolize the heritage of British mints for investors around the world.

Gold Britannia Coin Security Features

To prevent counterfeiting of the gold Britannia coin, four security features have been added to the coin since 2021. These features are:

  • Latent feature: A hologram effect where the padlock turns into a trident when viewed from a different angle.
  • Surface animation: Micro details created by means of special laser engravings on the coin that give the visual effect that the waves are in motion.
  • Micro-tekst: the inscription DECUS ET TUTAMEN, in English “an ornament and a safeguard”, around the Britannia effigy was created by means of special lasers.
  • Tincture lines: A traditional art form in which colors and patterns are depicted on metal.
By adding these features, the Royal Mint guarantees that your coin is genuine. For coins that are purchased from private individuals, we always check whether the coin is genuine. With this, The Silver Mountain guarantees that you always buy authentic coins.

Frequently asked questions about gold Britannia coins

Since when have gold Britannia coins been issued?

Britannia gold coins have been issued since 1987 by The Royal Mint, the official mint of the United Kingdom. 

Is Queen Elizabeth II or King Charles III depicted on Britannia coins?

All coins coming from the year 2022 or earlier have an image of Queen Elizabeth II on the reverse of the coin. This changed after the death of the queen in September 2022.


Something special is going on with the coins from the year 2023. The first 2023 coins were struck with an image of Queen Elizabeth on the reverse. Then The Royal Mint chose to mint the rest of the 2023 coins with an image of King Charles III on the back. This means that there are gold Britannia 2023 coins with both Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles III depicted on the reverse of the coin. The Royal Mint was the only mint to issue investment coins with an image of King Charles III as early as 2023.


As of 2024, all newly minted gold Britannia coins contain an image of King Charles III. 

Where can I buy gold Britannia coins?

You can buy your gold Britannia coins from The Silver Mountain. We supply newly minted Britannia coins that we purchase from official distributors of The Royal Mint. In addition, you can also buy pre-owned gold Britannia coins from us. We buy these Britannia coins from previous vintages from individuals through Inkoop Edelmetaal. All gold coins we sell are checked for authenticity and weight. 

What is the gold content of a gold Britannia coin?

The new gold Britannia coins are in 24-carat gold, or 99.99% gold. This has not always been so until 2012, the gold Britannia coins were still minted in 22-carat gold, which is 91.67% pure gold. The weight in gold, the net weight, did always remain the same. The older Britannia coins were therefore heavier than the new coins, which means that despite the lower content, they contained as much gold as the coins with a higher gold content. 

Can I easily sell gold Britannia coins again?

You can easily sell gold Britannia coins with our buyback guarantee. We buy back gold Britannia coins from individuals through our sister company Inkoop Edelmetaal. Through Inkoop Edelmetaal, we buy gold coins at a fixed bid percentage based on the current gold price.
