DETAILS

The Royal Mint has officially released the newly updated 2023 British Gold Britannia coin, featuring the first coinage portrait of His Majesty, King Charles III. This marks the start of King Charles III being featured on British coinage, following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022 and the ascension of King Charles III to the throne. This coin is sure to be highly sought-after by both investors and collectors, as it holds important significance in the history of British coinage.

The Gold Britannia series was first released in 1987 and until now, every coin has featured Queen Elizabeth II. This release is the first major change in the program since the coin’s inception.

The coin’s contents have not changed, with each coin containing 1/2 troy oz of .9999 pure gold in BU condition. The coins will be shipped to you in individual protective flips or sheets of 20 coins.

The obverse of the 2023 1/2 oz British Gold Britannia displays the first coinage portrait of King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings in left-profile relief and featuring the King without a crown. The reverse features a modern depiction of Britannia, as originally designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan. Britannia is seen atop a rock, holding a trident in her right hand and a Union Jack shield and an olive branch in her left.

Additionally, the Britannia coin also contains four advanced security elements to ensure its legitimacy, including a moving wave texture in the reverse background, a latent security image of a padlock, tincture lines on the shield, and micro-text engraving.
