The history of coins in Britannia is rich and varied, with the first coinage believed to have been introduced by Celtic tribes. Romans, at the end of their invasion in AD 43, began creating various minting locations to stabilize and unify the currency of their newly acquired lands.
Created over 1100 years ago, the British mint was originally a series of locations that produced the coins of the realm. Eventually, the Royal Mint was centralized and remained housed in the Tower of London for over 800 years.
The 1 oz. British Gold Britannia debuted in 1987. In 2013, 5 oz. and 1/20 oz. coins were added to the collection and the gold content was boosted from .917 to .9999 purity.
This coin features Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, and a stunning image of Britannia on its reverse. These coins are highly sought after and continue to be a valuable addition to any coin collection.
