The obverse features a poised Britannia with her war helmet, fish scale armour and trident, rendered in such sure and meticulous detail as to give this Britannia a truly modern flare. Britannia’s imposing figure is set against a field of stylised wave design, owing to her maritime connections; she is joined only by the ‘Britannia’ title in the lower left corner.
The reverse features the same, intricate and striking field of wave design and includes the pictorial and written Royal Mint logos, as well as details of weight, metal content purity and serial number. Interest has been added at the bottom of the reverse, where a region has been kept clear of the field texturing in an artful wave shaped design.
Although the history of the Britannia figure spans more than 2000 years, this is the first Britannia themed bar to be released by the Royal Mint. Celebrate the enduring strength, unity and liberty of Britain and fortify your holdings with a 1 oz Britannia gold bar now!
