The 1/2 oz British Gold Britannia (Random Year) is a stunning addition to any precious metal collection now available from GoldClub Direct. Minted by the renowned Royal Mint, this coin features the iconic Britannia design, which has been a symbol of British strength and resilience for centuries.
The series was officially introduced in 1987 to compete with other countries’ gold bullion coin series.Since then, the series has expanded to include silver, platinum, and palladium coins, each featuring the same stunning Britannia design. In 2013, the British Gold Britannia underwent a significant update. The purity of the coin was increased to .9999 from .9167, making it one of the purest gold coins on the market. Additionally, the 2013 update added advanced security features, including radial lines on the coin’s background and a latent image of a trident on the reverse side.
This listing is for random year coins, meaning you may receive any year of issue since the series was introduced. Many of the obverse designs of this series feature Queen Elizabeth II. Her image is often accompanied by the inscription “ELIZABETH II D.G. REG. F.D.”, which stands for “Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith”.
The reverse design has remained the same since the coin’s introduction. The classic depiction of Britannia, a powerful female figure who has long been associated with the British Isles is seen on the reverse. In this design, Britannia is depicted standing strong, holding a trident in one hand and a shield emblazoned with the Union Jack in the other.
The Royal Mint is one of the oldest and most respected mints in the world, with over 1,100 years of history. Their commitment to quality is evident in every detail of the British Gold Britannia, from the intricate design to the flawless finish.
