The Britannia’s artwork pays tribute to cultural heritage of the UK. Portrayed on the obverse of the coin is Britannia herself, who serves as the female embodiment of the British Empire. Although classically attired in a billowing toga, she has also armed herself with a war helmet and a trident in reference to Great Britain’s naval power. In addition to the armor, she carries an olive branch and a shield bearing the Union Jack pattern to represent the peace that the British navy must protect at all costs. Encircling this poignant image is a border inscribed with the word, “Britannia” and the coin’s mintage year, weight and purity.
Shown on the reverse side is yet another female embodiment of the UK, Elizabeth the II. In this effigy, the benevolent ruler is depicted in profile, wearing her a poised, but reassuring expression on her face. The portrait represents Great Britain’s unwavering devotion to the crown. Further emphasizing this sense of loyalty is the ring of text surrounding the effigy, which includes the ruler’s name and the Latin abbreviation “D G Reg Fid Def” or “Queen by the Grace of God.
