Gold Britannias are among the world's most sought-after bullion coins thanks to their exceptional fineness, recognisable design features and CGT free status in the UK. The Britannia 1/10 gold coin is an affordable alternative to larger denomination coins in the series and ideal for those who wish to add fine gold to their portfolios. These strikingly beautiful 1/10 Britannias are also a great introduction to bullion coins for younger family members or friends.
Britannias were first issued in 1987. Like all UK gold and silver bullion coins struck by the Royal Mint, they are legal tender and therefore exempt from Capital Gains Tax (CGT). Each 1/10 coin contains one-tenth of an ounce (3.13 g) of the finest 24 carat gold (.9999) and has a diameter of 16.50 mm. The reverse shows the famous image of Britannia designed by Philip Nathan; the classic 'standing Britannia' is an internationally recognised symbol of protection and grace. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse along with the coin's denomination.
