Britannia is one of the most enduring symbols of Great Britain. She first appeared on the realm's coins around AD 119 during the time of the Roman Emperor Hadrian when the British Isles were claimed as the province of Britannia. Since then, her image has graced coinage issued during the reign of Charles II in 1672.
Gold Britannia coins were added to The Royal Mint’s Bullion portfolio in 1987 and were an instant success. Silver Britannia coins were introduced in 1997 with the same design features as their gold counterparts. The 2018 1oz Silver Britannia features Philip Nathan's classic reverse design; the artist depicted Britannia in classical gown, hair windswept and holding her famous shield and olive branch. Waves lap at her feet, referencing Britannia's strong maritime links. Since 2017, Britannia coins also feature a radiating sunburst style background that acts as an extra measure against fraud and counterfeit.
