The legendary figure of Britannia has symbolised Britain’s strength and integrity on coinage since Roman times.

This new specification combined with its tradition and integrity gives new life for today’s investment customer.
All 1oz gold Britannias contain one troy ounce (31.1035 grams) of gold. From 1987 until 2012 Britannia coins weighed slightly more than a troy ounce due to being alloyed with other metals, pre-2013 they were produced in .917 fineness (or 22 carat gold) with the non-gold component being copper until 1989 and silver from 1990. In 2013 The Royal Mint began producing Britannia coins in their current form of 999.9 fineness (24 carat gold).
