1oz Britannia Gold Coin - Royal Mint

The 2021 Bullion Britannia Gold 1oz Coin redefines security in the bullion market. Created by the team behind the United Kingdom’s new-style £1 coin (dubbed the ‘world’s most secure coin’), Britannia has evolved once more to spearhead the best security technology available and lead the way as the most visually secure coin in the world. Philip Nathan’s award-winning Britannia from 1987 is the enduring symbol of a nation, boldly standing beside a shield that bears the Union Flag, a symbol of Britain’s strength, and holds an olive branch representing peace. Nathan’s Britannia is as beautiful as ever, struck in 999.9 fine gold, now enhanced with four landmark features. In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, is a trident to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, emphasising the coin’s secure nature. Surface animation reflects the movement of waves, and fine details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been carefully highlighted in the coin’s bullion finish. These added security features both decorate and protect the coin, just as the micro-text that borders the design states – DECUS ET TUTAMEN, or AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage/ insurance requirements. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information.
