About Britannia

Britannia Coins Britannia, armed with a trident and shield and wearing a Corinthian helmet, has symbolised the British Isles from the 2nd century AD onwards. Roman coins unearthed in the British Isles depict Britannia carrying a Roman military standard and a sceptre, seated on a pile of stones, which are probably part of Hadrian's Wall. In 1672, during the reign of Charles II, Britannia was included on the new copper farthings. The model for Britannia was said to be his mistress, Frances Teresa Stewart, Duchess of Richmond. Britannia has graced the coinage of every British monarch since. The last British coin in general circulation to feature Britannia was the fifty decimal pence (50p) seven-sided coin of 2008. Today, Britannia adorns the specially minted, highest denomination coins of the realm. Britannia coins in 22ct gold were first struck by the Royal Mint in 1987. They are issued with one ounce, one-half ounce, one quarter-ounce and one-tenth ounce gold, with nominal face values of £100, £50, £25 and £10 respectively. A five-ounce gold Britannia proof coin was introduced in 2013, in which Britannia is featured with an owl, representing wisdom. Containing 99.9% pure gold, and costing £8,200, only one hundred have been minted. A one-twentieth ounce coin was also introduced. The actual value of gold coins is linked to the price of gold, so is very much greater than the face value. Silver Britannia coins were first minted in 1997, and sold in sets, rather than individually. The silver content is 95.84%, with 4.16% copper added. In 2013 an individual silver Britannia was introduced, containing 99.9% silver. Issued annually, even-numbered years have a standing Britannia on the reverse, and odd-numbered years have a non-repeating design.
