The Final Britannia Gold Coin To Feature Queen Elizabeth II
Britannia 2023 gold coin featuring the fifth and final effigy of Queen Elizabeth II has a very limited production run. A Britannia featuring King Charles III's first effigy will be released in the New Year.
Britannia represents an enduring Bullion investment. The weight and strength of the coins are verified at the centuries-old annual Trial of the Pyx. Britannia coins are CGT-exempt in the United Kingdom and VAT-free in the UK and European Community as a UK currency. Sculptor Philip Nathan, the designer of the first Britannia bullion in 1987, envisaged her as a classic and evolving icon.
In this classic design, she stands firm against a powerful gale which whips around her shield, Corinthian helmet and olive branch. The 2023 design also features a speckled radial sunburst at her back.
