Specific Year Gold Britannias 1oz
Gold Britannia coins were issued by the Royal Mint since 1987 and initially had a gold purity of 0.971 (91.7% or 22 carat gold). However since 2013, the fineness had been increased to 0.9999 (24 carat gold) making the Britannia, a firm favourite with investors and collectors with its iconic Britannia design.
"Britannia" is an ancient name for Great Britain and has been associated with coinage since early Roman times. Until 1936 it appeared on the UK farthing, UK pennies from 1979 and the UK 50 pence coin until 2008.
2017 celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Britannia Coin and features a refreshed design to commemorate the occasion.
With a face value of up to £500, Britannia coins are VAT free and must be considered by any investor or collector.
