Struck by the world-renown Royal Mint, the popular Gold Britannia returns to the market for the 2022 edition of the coin. This year marks the 35th year of the Gold Britannia after it was first minted in 1987. For the first 26 years of production, the coin was only produced with .917 gold. Starting in 2013, the coin was stuck with .9999 pure gold, including the new 2022 Britannia! The Royal Mint eventually expanded to include the Britannia in silver and platinum, making the series a customer favorite in all precious metals.
As a government-backed coin, the Gold Britannia is popular among investors for its legal tender value. Each one-ounce coin is backed by the British government with a face value of £100 and is one of the only government-issued coins to only be offered as a one-ounce coin rather than in multiple sizes.
The Britannia has had 14 different reverse styles during the course of its three-decade existence. Each template features "Britannia," which is the British equivalent of the U.S. "Lady Liberty." In each design, Britannia is seen wearing a helmet, flowing clothes, and a trident. A trident is found below her flowing dress and offers a new security feature to the coin. When altering perspectives, this trident becomes a padlock, representing the secure nature of this coin. The intricate detail of the coin also offers security to the coin because of its difficulty in replicating.
The obverse face of the coin is similar to all years in the past, featuring Jody Clark’s famous effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The inscription "100 POUNDS," "ELIZABETH II," and "D G REG F D" surround the effigy, the last of which stands for the Latin phrase "Dei Gratia Regina," which translates to "By God's Grace, Queen."
