The Royal Mint added the UK Britannia Platinum bullion coins to help investors to diversify their precious metal portfolio.

The platinum bullion coin is a welcome addition to the other platinum bullion coins found on the market; ex: Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf, Australian Platinum Kangaroo, and the American Eagle Platinum bullion coin.

The platinum Britannia bullion coins are struck in .9995 fine platinum and are minted in a proof-like finish, plus they carry the United Kingdom government’s assurance of weight and purity.

Design of the
1 oz. Britannia Platinum Bullion Coin




Obverse

Featured on the obverse side of the 1 oz. UK Britannia Platinum bullion coin is the current portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. 

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

Inscribed, inside the crenellated border of the coin, are the words and letters "ELIZABETH II, D,G, REG, FID, DEF". 

D, G, REG, stands for "Dei Gratia Regina," it is a Latin title meaning "By the Grace of God, Queen." 

F, D, stands for "Fidei Defensor," it also is a Latin title that translates into "Defender of the Faith" in English.

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

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

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

Reverse

platinum britannia rev

The design on the UK Britannia Platinum Bullion Coin was taken from Philip Nathan's original design of Britannia standing. 

The Designer's last name of "NATHAN" is inscribed directly below Britannia's portrait.

Britannia's Portrait and Image is a Symbol of National Pride for the United Kingdom.

"Britannia" is viewed as a beautiful young woman with flowing golden hair, a Corinthian helmet and she is dressed in white robes.  

She's often depicted as holding a three-pronged trident in one hand and standing near or holding a shield with the British Union Jack Flag on it.

The Name of the bullion coin "BRITANNIA" and the platinum coins Year of Issue "2019" are inscribed inside the coin's notched crenelated border.

Also inscribed inside the coin's border is the platinum bullion coins Weight of "1 oz" and Purity "999.5 PLATINUM."

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.
