Britannia is one of the oldest symbols of Britain and the British people. When the Roman Empire invaded and clashed with the tribes already living in the British Isles, the Ancient Greek term Pretani was modified in Latin to Pretannia as the name of the province under Roman control. Translated into English, the term Britannia came to be used in reference to the region and its people.
Today, Britannia serves as the female personification of Britain. Although Emperor Hadrian first issued Roman coins in 119 AD with her image, the first British issuance of coins with Britannia on the reverse side first occurred in 1687 during the reign of King Charles II. Britannia remained popular on circulation currency following the union of British and Scottish crowns legally in 1707 and is now the face of the nations modern apr57 coinage.
On the obverse of 2020 1/10 oz British Platinum Britannia Coins is the depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This right-profile portrait of Her Majesty was created in July 2015 by Jody Clark and is the fifth-generation effigy on British coins. This design captures the Queen at the age of 89 wearing the Royal Diadem crown on her head.
The reverse face of 2020 British Platinum Britannia Coins includes the Philip Nathan vision of Britannia. In this powerful rendition, Britannia is depicted with a Corinthian helmet on her head. She holds a trident in her right hand that grants her power over the seas and her left hand rests on the top of a shield emblazoned with the Union Jack.
These 2020 1/10 oz British Platinum Britannia Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are housed individually inside of protective plastic flips, mint tubes of 25 coins, or Monster Boxes of 500 coins.
