A new take on a classic of numismatic design, this platinum Proof coin is a must-have issue from the Royal Mint.
Designed by Louis Tamlyn, the 2017 Britannia features a new, modern design reflecting a year of vast political change. Britannia's body and dress fades into the landmass of Great Britain, symbolising her unity with the United Kingdom, and stability for the future.
This platinum coin also features an exclusive trident mark, reserved solely for the 2017 Britannia.
2017 also marks two notable anniversaries for this iconic coin: 1987, when the Britannia bullion was first introduced to the international market, and 1997, the year in which the first silver Britannia bullion coin was issued.
Like America's Lady Liberty or France's Marianne, Britannia is the female personification of Britain. Appearing on British coins for centuries, Britannia is an enduring symbol, reflecting the spirit and values of Britain. Politics and culture may change, but Britannia remains a steadfast reminder of unity, liberty and strength.
“Here is a new Britannia, a modern Britannia. She holds her ancient warrior attributes – crested helmet, spear and shield – as a constant, a sign of stability and a long-lasting emblem of a nation. She is holding her spear with serenity and her shield with strength. Great Britain is illustrated by incorporating Britannia into its silhouette – her flowing robe is in fact the stable, rocky surface of Britain itself." - designer Louis Tamlyn.
