The 1/10 oz Gold Britannia was originally the smallest weight available in the collection. From 1987 to 2012, the series offered only 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. In 2013, a 1/20 oz coin and 5 oz coin were introduced that made the 1/20 oz coin the new smallest option in the series.
Over the course of time, numerous changes have occurred in this program. In addition to the added weights just mentioned, the series shifted from 22-karat gold (1987-2012) to 24-karat gold (2013-onward) and has altered the background fields to enhance the visual brilliance and security of the coins. The background field on the reverse now features radiating sun lines behind the figure of Britannia, while the obverse has a guilloche background field behind the bust of Queen Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of these 2020 Gold British Britannias in the fifth-generation portrait from Jody Clark. Mr. Clark created this portrait of the Queen in 2015 and became the youngest artist to ever do so for the Royal Mint, being just 33 years old at the time. The Queen is shown in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
Britannia displays her power and courage in the design on the reverse of the 2020 1/10 oz Gold British Britannias. Designed by Philip Nathan in 1987 for the debut of this series, Britannia resolutely defends the British Isles with a trident in one hand to grant her control over the seas and a shield in the other to ward off any invaders.
