The 2018 1 oz Platinum Britannia joins an illustrious history of this bullion coin from The Royal Mint. The Gold Britannia was introduced in 1987, showcasing a powerful design of Britannia herself, holding a trident and shield. Britannia has symbolized Britain’s strength and integrity on coinage since Roman times. After seeing immense popularity, the mint introduced the Silver Britannia series in 1997, featuring the same iconic design.
Over the years, Platinum has become more popular among investors and collectors, though it is still fairly rare to find many bullion coins offered in this industrial metal. The Royal Mint introduced their first 1 oz Platinum bullion coin in the second half of 2017 as part of the Queen’s Beasts series. This 1 oz Platinum Britannia contains .9995 fine Platinum, making it eligible for inclusion in a Precious Metals IRA.
Platinum helps round out any Precious Metals portfolio. Pre-order the 2018 1 oz Platinum Britannia today to find the perfect next piece to any Britannia collection.
