British Britannias debuted in 1987 with the release of gold bullion coins. The series offers both 1 oz and fractional-ounce weights in the gold series, as well as the silver series that was introduced a decade later in 1997. More than two decades later, the mint introduced these platinum coins with 1 oz and 1/10 oz options available to investors.
The obverse side of 2022 Platinum British Britannias comes with a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This design was created in 2015 by Jody Clark and shows the Queen at the age of 89. For this portrait, the Queen is shown wearing the George IV State Diadem, one of the official pieces from the Crown Jewels.
On the reverse face of the 2022 1 oz Platinum Britannia is an image of Britannia, the female personification of Britain. In this stirring design, she is shown standing along a coastline with a large shield in her left hand. Her left hand rests on this shield, which is emblazoned with the Union Jack, as it clutches an olive branch. Wearing a long gown and a Corinthian helmet, she wields a trident in her other hand.
