Each of the 2021 1 oz Gold British Britannia Coins available through this specific listing come with MintID packaging. MintID housing consists of a sealed blisterpack with tamper-evident enclosures and an NFC chip applied to the pack. This chip can be scanned using an NFC-enabled smart device and the MintID app. Each NFC chip is 128-bit AES encrypted, ensuring that the authentication information on the coin is accessible only by the coin owner. Additionally, the NFC chip is rendered useless if there are attempts to tamper with it, providing another layer of security for the coin.
To access the authentication profile stored in the cloud for each coin, you’ll need the MintID app on your smart device. You won’t have to share any sensitive data or personal information to use the app. Simply download and launch the MintID app. Using the NFC technology in your smart device, you can scan the NFC symbol on the housing of the coin while in the MintID app and it will take you directly to the profile of that specific coin. Please keep in mind your phone will need iOS 13.0 or later or Android 4.2 or later to use the MintID app.
The obverse side of 2021 Gold British Britannias comes with an effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is shown in this 2015 design at the age of 89 while wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
On the reverse field of 2021 1 oz Gold Britannias, you will find Philip Nathan’s depiction of a powerful Britannia figure. She stands defiant on the coast with a trident in one hand and the Union Jack shield in the other. This side of the coin has the Royal Mint’s new security features included. Here, you will find tincture lines on the Union Jack shield, micro-text around the immediate design element, and two features that changed based on the movement of the coin. Behind Britannia, waves that mimic the rolling ocean actually seem to move as you adjust the coin. A new security mark also changes as the coin moves to swap between the image of a trident head and a lock.
