A Nation's Spirit
Britannia - the crown jewel of The Royal Mint's treasury, is once again reinvented in a beautiful design for 2018.
Previous designs have often featured a full image of Britannia, usually gripping a trident and evoking a sense of naval might.
Here, designer David Lawrence has scaled down and returned Britannia to her Ancient Roman roots. The design features a beautiful effigy of Britania in profile, resplendent in her traditional Corinthian helmet and flowing robes.
She symbolises power - but also of a nation united, with her helmet also adorned with familiar flora - the English rose, the Welsh daffodil, the Irish clover and the Scottish thistle - as beams of sunlight burst through clouds behind her.
The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth - facing in the same direction as Britannia, linking these two female figures that have become so irrevocably synonymous with Britain and its history.
