A stunning design to mark an historic year for the Britannia 2017 coin
The 2017 Britannia collection has a new take on a classic of numismatic design. These much sought after gold and silver Proof coins are must-have issues from The Royal Mint.
The Britannia 2017 Coins
Designed by Louis Tamlyn, the 2017 Britannia coin 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.
“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," Britannia coin designer Louis Tamlyn.
The gold, silver and platinum coins also features an exclusive trident mark, used solely for the Britannia 2017 edition.
An Historic Year for the Britannia
2017 marks 2 notable anniversaries for this famous coin: 30 years since the Britannia bullion was first introduced to the international market in 1987, and the 20 year anniversary of the issue first silver Britannia bullion coin in 1997.
An Iconic Symbol of Britain
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.
Through the years, Britannia has been the coin collector's favourite, alonside other bullion coins like the Krugerrand and Maple Leaf.
