Introduced in 2018, the Platinum British Britannia is a unique platinum coin series among those available globally at the moment. While historic platinum bullion coin collections like the American Eagle and Canadian Maple Leaf once featured fractional-ounce coins, the Platinum Britannia is the only major bullion series currently available that offers a fractional-ounce coin alongside a 1 oz platinum coin.

Platinum Britannia coins were introduced in 2018 by the Royal Mint of England with a 1 oz platinum coin and 1/10 oz platinum coin available. In terms of annual-issue BU coins, the Platinum Britannia is the only major collection to still offer a fractional-ounce coin. The series arrived at a point in the history of the marketplace when platinum coin production was increasing.
For example, 2016 saw the introduction of two new platinum bullion coins in other major collections. That year saw the Somalia Elephant Series and the Austrian Philharmonic Series both introduce 1 oz platinum bullion collections. Two years later it was the Royal Mint’s turn as it debuted the Platinum Britannias.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse face of 2021 1 oz Platinum British Britannias. This bust of the Queen is the fifth-generation portrait to feature on British coins during her reign. It was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark and depicts the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
Britannia is depicted in a modern design of the female personification on the reverse field of 2021 Platinum British Britannias. Philip Nathan created this modern vision of Britannia that shows her standing along the coast of the British Isles. She grasps a trident in her right hand, granting her control over the seas. A shield resting beneath her right-hand guards the nation and features the Union Jack on its surface.
