Since she first appeared on coins in the Far East in the nineteenth century, Britannia has become a trusted symbol to investors in the Far East – instantly recognisable as the face of the British Trade Dollar.
For 2018 The Royal Mint is excited to issue a special Britannia coin, celebrating our historic relationship with Asia. Struck in fine gold, Britannia is flanked by an ornate oriental border inspired by the Chinese-themed rooms at Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton.

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

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).
