Britannia Platinum

Britannia, the female warrior, has been an emblem and national representation of the United Kingdom since 100 B.C. As the Roman Empire expanded and conquered different provinces they used female figures to name different nations. Britannia pertained to the Island of Great Britain. Britannia has long been present in coinage series first appearing on roman coins over 2,000 years ago under Emperor Hadrian. She first appeared on British coinage in 1672 and was featured on all modern coinage series until its redesign in 2008. She was again re-introduced on the British £2 coin in 2015. Further to this, she appears annually on the Gold, Silver, and Platinum bullion coin series which is one of the Royal Mints most cherished pieces.

Britannia 1 oz Platinum Coin

The Britannia 1 oz platinum coin features the goddess Britannia on its reverse and Queen Elizabeth II in its obverse.
