The reverse of the coin was designed by Martin Jennings with the 2023 coin featuring a portrait of King Charles III, the first image of His Majesty to be depicted on a coin.
The latest design on the obverse of the Britannia bullion coin was created by sculptor Philip Nathan in 1987 for The Royal Mint. His striking design includes the original symbolism selected to identify with the values of Britain. The shield is for protection, an olive branch represents peace, and the trident is a link to her maritime history. Although the image of Britannia has been around for hundreds of years, The Royal Mint in Wales is the only facility permitted to strike Philip Nathan’s elegant masterpiece.
The quarter-ounce gold coin is made of 999.9 fine gold with a diameter of 22 mm and a metric weight of 7.775 g or a quarter of a troy ounce. It has a denomination of £25. The Britannia Bullion Range includes gold coins in weights of 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz with the silver coins available in 1 kg and 1 oz. There are also platinum coins in 1oz and 1/10oz.
This is an exquisite coin offering great appeal to both investors and collectors alike, offering both exceptional artistry and precise minting.
