The Royal Mint of England introduced the Gold Britannia Coins in 1987 with four coins available to investors. The smallest of the coins available at that time was the 1/10 oz Gold Britannia. The coins have the same design of Britannia on the reverse every year, and regularly updated effigies of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.
1/10 oz Gold British Britannia Coins are issued with the same metal content as the other coins in the collection. The 1/10 oz coin, like the other weights, was originally available with .9167 gold content until 2012. In 2013, the Royal Mint of England enhanced the gold content of the coins to .9999 fine gold content, otherwise known as 24-karat gold.
On the reverse face of all 1/10 oz Gold British Britannia Coins is the image of Britannia. Designed in 1987 by Philip Nathan, the image depicts the personification of the British people. The goddess-like figure stands guard on Britain’s southern coast with a shield bearing the Union Jack, a trident in her right hand for defense, and a Corinthian cap.
The obverse of 1/10 oz Gold Britannia Coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reigning monarch of Great Britain has had her portrait of British coinage since 1953 following her rise to the throne in 1952. Her effigy has been modified five times, and these 1/10 oz coins could feature the third-generation design from Raphael Maklouf (1987-1997), the fourth-generation design from Ian Rank-Broadley (1998-2015), or the fifth-generation portrait from Jody Clark (2016-onward).
