Gold Britannias debuted in 1987 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold coins. The series expanded in 2013 to offer 1/20 oz gold and 5 oz gold coins. That same year, the gold content of the coins was raised from .917 gold content to .9999 fine gold. In 2021, the latest addition to the series came in the form of new security elements.
The reverse side of all 2022 Gold Britannias comes with those same security features. The background field has a wave-motion texture that changes as you adjust your viewing angle. The included latent security circle also changes as you adjust your viewing angle, changing from a padlock to a trident. The design field has a micro-text engraving around it and there are tincture lines on the Union Jack shield.
The obverse field of 2022 1 oz Gold Britannias features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured here in right-profile relief at the age of 89 wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. The design serves as the fifth-generation portrait of the Queen on British coins and was developed in 2015 by Jody Clark.
On the reverse side of 2022 Gold British British Britannias is an image of Britannia. The female allegory representing both Britons and the British Isles, she is shown in an aggressive design that showcases her as the defender of the realm. Ready for peaceful defense, she clutches the Union Jack shield and an olive branch in her left hand. Prepared to go on the offensive, she also holds a trident in her right hand.
These 2022 1 oz Gold British Britannias are offered to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Coins in this weight come with individual flips, tubes of 10 coins, or boxes of 100 coins that include 10 tubes of 10 coins each.
