The History of "Britannia"

"Britannia" is the Ancient Latin Name for Great Britain  

Great Britain was known as "Britannia" as early as the 1st century to after the Roman Empire and has been seen in 9th and 12th-century titles. 

During the early Renaissance,  when the nation of "Britannia" became known as Great Britain, "Britannia" transformed into a female inspired symbol of Great Britain, representing strength and integrity. 

In 1672, "Britannia" first appeared on British coinage.

"Britannia" is a young woman with flowing, brown or golden hair, a Corinthian helmet and dressed in white robes.  

She's often depicted as holding a three-pronged trident, in one hand, while standing or seated, holding a shield with the British Flag on it, in the other hand.  She is often depicted with a lion.

Up until 2008, the lion symbol was depicted behind Britannia on the British fifty pence coin and on the back of the British ten pence coin.







Design of the
1 oz. Britannia Gold Bullion Coin




Obverse

Featured on the obverse side of the 1 oz. UK Britannia gold bullion coin is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Jody Coats, designed the effigy of the Queen, his initials, "JC" are inscribed directly below the Queen's neck.

Inscribed inside the rim of the coin, are the words and letters "ELIZABETH II, D,G, REG, F, D".

D, G, REG, stand for "Dei gratia regina," is a Latin title meaning "By the Grace of God, Queen."

F, D, translates to "fidei defensor," it also is a Latin title that translates into "Defender of the Faith" in English.

The phrases have been used regularly on British coinage since the 16th century.

The Face Value of the Britannia Gold coin is "100 POUNDS."

Issued as legal tender, the Gold Britannia bullion coin is guaranteed by the Government of the United Kingdom.
