The Royal Mint is the world’s leading export mint, making coins and medals for an average of 60 countries every year. However, its first responsibility is to make and distribute United Kingdom coins as well as to supply blanks and official medals.
The Royal Mint has evolved to become a sophisticated industrial concern operating today as a government company. The 1100 or so years of its existence track the history of Britain through its wars and political upheavals, its social and economic progress, its technological and scientific advances. Its history is in short woven into that of Britain itself.
Gold and Silver Britannia’s from the Royal Mint ……
Steadfast and confident, Britannia is a symbol of resilience and strength. The Royal Mint responded to a renewed appetite for traditional investments and a growing global bullion market, introducing a bullion portfolio in 1987.
In 2017 we commemorate two significant anniversaries for the modern classic design on the bullion coins that carry her name. The Gold celebrates its 30th anniversary, and 20 years for Silver.
To celebrate this significant milestone, the 2017 Gold and Silver Britannia design has been refreshed with a new high security radial sunburst background, modernizing this iconic coin. With Britannia leading the way as a symbol of strength and resilience, these bullion coins are now instantly recognizable as an investment staple in the UK and international market.
Britannia gold coins are also available as a half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce coin.
The Britannia coin series is available to purchase from APMEX now:
