Britannia was the name given to the new Roman province in the British Isles following the successful conquest of most of the region by the Roman Empire in the first century AD. Emperor Hadrian issued currency for the province that included images of Britannia, the female personification of the province.
Images of Britannia featured on Roman coins throughout its control of the province, but Britannia would not regularly appear on British currency again until 1672 when King Charles II issued coins with this enduring symbol of strength, integrity, and valor. Every monarch since Charles II has used Britannias image on coinage.
The reverse of 2019 1/10 oz British Platinum Britannia Coins includes the image of Britannia. A powerful symbol of strength and unity, Britannia stands perched at the southern coasts of Britain ready to defend the isles. She wields a trident in her right hand to control the seas while her left hand clutches a shield with the Union Jack flag on it ready to defend the nation against outside aggressors.
On the obverse of 2019 British Platinum Britannia Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. In this definitive fifth-generation design from Jody Clark, Her Majesty is depicted in right-profile relief wearing the Royal Diadem crown. The Queen is aged 89 years in this depiction that began to appear on British coins with 2016 date marks following its 2015 unveiling.
These 2019 1/10 oz British Platinum Britannia Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in this listing come in individual protective packaging, mint tubes of 25 coins, or sealed boxes of 500 coins that contain 20 tubes.
