Each of the 2021 1 oz Gold British Oriental Border Britannias available in this product listing comes with individual protective capsules.

The Oriental Border design concept is rooted in the issuance of British Trade Dollars in the late-19th century. The British Trade Dollar, like those of France, Japan, China, and the United States, was designed for use in commercial trading in Chinese and Southeast Asian port cities. The issuance of Trade Dollars simplified international transactions in these ports by offering stabilized silver content in each coin regardless of the issuing nation.
On the obverse side of the 2021 Gold British Oriental Border Britannias is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief in a design that is the fifth iteration of her portrait to feature on British coinage. The design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and first used on coins issued with 2016 date marks. The effigy shows the Queen aged 89 with the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head.
The reverse field of 2021 1 oz Gold British Oriental Border Britannia Coins includes the Britannia figure. Britannia was designed for the Royal Mint of England in 1987 by Philip Nathan and appears on the gold, silver, and platinum versions of the coin. Britannia stands here with the trident in one hand and a shield in the other.
