Britannia 2024 1/10oz Gold Bullion Coin

Expertly struck in 999.9 fine gold and enhanced with four security features, Philip Nathan’s depiction of Britannia is as beautiful as ever on this bullion coin. Located in the lower left-hand of the coin design, below Britannia’s gown, a latent image of a trident is visible to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective, this trident changes visually to a padlock, which emphasises the coin’s secure nature.

Across the world, many know The Royal Mint for our ability to create products made with precious metals that blend traditional craft with innovative technology. For 2024, our Britannia bullion coin employs this combination and redefines security within the bullion market. Philip Nathan’s 1987 Britannia design stands as strong and as beautiful as ever, enhanced and protected just as the micro-text that borders the design states – ‘DECUS ET TUTAMEN’, which translates as ‘An ornament and a safeguard’. Reflecting the flow of waves as you move the coin, surface animation features in the background. A latent feature in the lower left-hand segment of the coin switches between a trident and a padlock based on the viewer’s perspective, which emphasises both Britannia’s naval strength and the secure nature of the coin. Finally, tincture lines highlight details like the Union flag on Britannia’s shield and make this tenth-ounce 999.9 fine gold coin one of the most visually secure coins in the world.

These features are also available on the one kilo and one ounce fine silver editions, one ounce, half-ounce and quarter-ounce fine gold editions and one ounce and tenth-ounce fine platinum editions of the coin.
