Britannia 2024 1/4oz 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.

Britannia is one of Britain’s most long-standing symbols, evolving from the time of Roman rule to become a representation of a modern, forward-looking nation. For 2024, this Britannia bullion coin blends Philip Nathan’s classical design of Britannia with innovative features to redefine security in the bullion market as one of the most visually secure coins in the world. Security features, such as the micro-text – ‘DECUS ET TUTAMEN’ – that borders the design and translates as ‘An ornament and a safeguard’, enhance Britannia’s strength and beauty in the design. In the lower left-hand part of the design, below Britannia’s flowing gown, a latent design features a trident to represent her nautical history. As the viewer changes their perspective, the trident becomes a padlock, emphasising the coin’s high level of security. Using a technique called hexurity, the background reflects the movement of waves by incorporating surface animation, and tincture lines highlight fine details such as the Union flag on Britannia’s shield.

These features are also available on the one kilo and one ounce fine silver editions, one ounce, half-ounce and tenth-ounce fine gold editions, and one ounce and tenth-ounce fine platinum editions of the coin. The Britannia 2024 bullion coin is also available without the additional features as quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce fine silver editions.
