The Britannia is one of the most popular and most symbolic investment coins in the entire modern investment market. Britannia was the Latin, feminine name of the land of the Celts, living from ancient Rome, with the administration of Scotland. The name is firmly derived from the ancient Greek word "Brettaniai", which means "collection of islands" and, as the female figure of the British, was used by the ancient British as a symbol of their national identity. The motif has existed for various motifs such as the occupied Britannia, the lion and the Britannia with a charioteer.
Designed by the team responsible for the UK's highly secure 12-sided £1 coin, the Britannia 2024 bullion coin is a stunning testament to both artistry and security. Meticulously struck in 999.9 fine gold, this masterpiece by Philip Nathan presents Britannia's timeless allure. Its four advanced security features, including a latent trident transforming into a padlock, solidify its status as one of the world's most visually secure coins.
As you engage with the coin, its dynamic surface captures the essence of waves, while meticulous tincture lines accentuate fine details such as the Union flag on Britannia's shield. These features play a dual role, enhancing both the coin's visual appeal and security measures. The micro-text bordering the design aptly declares 'DECUS ET TUTAMEN' – 'An ornament and a safeguard'.
Notably, this PCGS Graded Britannia is both CGT Free and VAT Free, adding intrinsic value to this remarkable piece of numismatic artistry.
