Noble, unique and exclusive - this probably best describes the 1 ounce Britannia gold coin 2023. It has been issued since 1987 by the United Kingdom Mint - British Royal Mint - and is one of the most famous coins on the market. The Britannia is a real investment classic.
The motif side shows annually the image of the British national figure Britannia with Corinthian helmet and robe. In the right hand of the warlike female figure in armor we see a trident with which she rules the seas. In her left hand she holds a shield with Britain's flag - the Union Jack - and a small olive branch. Britannia represents wisdom and a state community and is the female embodiment of the British Isles. The design has originated from Philip Nathan, who created the motif in 1987. His last name is embossed in capital letters below the Britannia. In the edge inscription we see the name "BRITANNIA", the year of mintage "2023" and the fine weight and fineness "1oz 999.9 FINE GOLD".
The iconic coin design has four advanced security features. The Britannia's additional anti-counterfeiting features include the embossing of a small circle with fluted content on the lower left corner of the design face. In this circle, depending on the perspective from which we view the coin, we can see a padlock that emphasizes the secure nature of the coin or a trident that represents its naval history. Furthermore, the wavy fluted background and shield of the Britannia provide a sense of security for the buyer. Additionally, the waves create a surface animation that mirrors the motion of the waves. The words "DECUS ET TUTAMEN", translated as "CALM AND PROTECTION" are written between the background and outer circle of the Britannia coin as microtext. These features adorn the Britannia 2023 gold coin and make it a visually safe coin.
The value side of the Britannia features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth the II, adjusted for age at irregular intervals. The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8, 2022. With a reign of over 70 years, she was the longest reigning monarch of our time. She is known worldwide and always enjoyed great popularity. Her death marks the beginning of a new era for the minting of coins.
The face value "10 POUNDS" and the name of the former English regent "ELIZABETH II", as well as the letters "D.G.REG.F.D", are embossed around the edge of the Britannia coin. The letters stand for the Latin lettering "Dej Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor". Translated, this means "By the Grace of God Queen, Defender of the Faith".
