Description

The Britannia remains one of the most highly sought-after bullion coins available today due to its nearly flawless design and the security which it provides investors. The 2021 edition of the Britannia combines tradition, security, and innovation, with new enhanced features that improve a coin that has been coveted since its initial conception in 1987. A new privy mark is included, which at first glance appears to be a padlock; however, under examination becomes a trident, which is a testament to the Royal Mint's innovative minting techniques and penchant for design.

The reverse side depicts the female personification of Great Britain, Britannia, her reassuring demeanour emblematic of national pride and the reign of one of the most established and successful monarchies in our collective history. Britannia is seen, resisting gale force winds, with her right arm extended, bearing a trident, with a union jack shield and an olive branch in her left. The typical guilloche design has been replaced with an enhanced surface animation that appears as waves to the examiner, with enhanced detailing of Britannia's shield using tincture lines. The image is encapsulated with a ring that contains the Latin phrase "Decus et Tutamen" or "Glory and Defense." The year of issue, weight, purity, and metal type are also included.

On the obverse is Jody Clark's contemporary effigy of her majesty, Queen Elizabeth, with meticulous attention to detail, over an enhanced guilloche design. Her title and the coin's denominational value are also displayed on the obverse.

The Britannia is a global powerhouse in bullion, as one of the most internationally recognized bullion coins in the world.
