One of the most recognizable coins in the world is the Gold British Britannia coin. Struck by the Royal Mint each year, the coin has been a staple of the United Kingdom’s economy in one form or another for several hundred years. First introduced in 1987, the Gold Britannia coin is the official gold bullion coin of the United Kingdom. Today, you can purchase a ¼ oz Gold British Britannia Coin from Silver.com, with varied year of minting, in brilliant uncirculated condition.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1/4 oz of .9999 pure gold.
  • Minted at the Royal Mint in Great Britain.
  • Features the popular Britannia design.
  • Available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

The first Gold British Britannia coins were struck in 1987 using .917 fine gold in the production process. The original coins in the series were offered in 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz weights. Beginning in 2013, the Gold British Britannia coin was struck using .9999 pure gold, with 5 oz and 1/20 oz coins introduced to the series. Generally speaking, ¼ oz coins are not struck in high mintage levels because demand is not as high. However, this means that ¼ oz Gold British Britannias are more difficult to come by for those who covet the small coin.

On the reverse side of each Gold British Britannia coin is a full-length depiction of Britannia. A personification of the island of Britain, as well as the official name for the province during the Roman Empire’s conquest of the British Isles, Britannia is featured wearing a Corinthian helmet on her head, wielding a trident in her right hand, and guarding the English Channel with a shield in her left. If you look closely, you’ll notice the Union Jack emblazoned on her shield.

The obverse side of the coin features the iconic right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley for use on British coins. Her image is surrounded by the engravings “Elizabeth II D.G.” and “Reg’Fid’Def.”

The Royal Mint issues all ¼ oz Gold British Britannia coins with a face value of £25. One of the oldest mints in the world, the Royal Mint was founded as single entity (the London Mint) in 886. The products in this listing are all in brilliant uncirculated condition, but year of minting will vary based upon availability at the time your order is fulfilled for shipment.
