The Gold Britannia
The Gold Britannia is one of the flagship coins of The Royal Mint and was first introduced in 1987. Today, it is one of the The Royal Mint's most popular products. Features including a latent image, surface animation, tincture lines, and micro text have been included into Philip Nathan's classic design for added security.
