Platinum Britannia

The Great British Platinum Britannia coin is the world’s newest government minted platinum bullion product. It is .9995% pure platinum and IRA eligible.

General Details

First introduced in 2018, the Platinum Britannia is the newest government-issued and guaranteed platinum bullion coin available to investors. It is issued by the government of the United Kingdom and struck by the British Royal Mint. The Royal Mint first introduced the modern designed Gold Britannia in 1987; it quickly gained significant global popularity and was followed by the Silver Britannia ten years later, in 1997. In 2018 the Platinum Britannia joined the collection of modern minted Britannia precious metals coins from the UK Government.

The Platinum Britannia is a bullion coin struck in .9995% fine platinum and is available in the standard one troy ounce size. The Royal Mint has also released it in a 1/10 ounce size as well as a very limited proof ¼ ounce version. Platinum Britannia coins come from the Royal Mint in tubes containing ten coins and in monster boxes of one hundred coins in ten mint tubes. It is a legal tender coin in the United Kingdom bearing a face-value of 100 £ (Pounds Sterling).

Design & Details of the Platinum Britannia

The obverse of the Platinum Britannia, like other British coinage, features the effigy of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II as well as the 100 Pound monetary denomination. A new element introduced in 2018 to the line of all Britannia coins, including the platinum version, is a guilloche background design.

The reverse side features the sculptor Philip Nathan’s depiction of the female figure of Britannia. She is wearing a classic flowing gown blowing in a strong wind. She holds a trident in her right hand and a shield and olive branch in her left. Waves crash at her feet. The Britannia has been a symbol of British strength for two thousand years. In fact, the Britannia first appeared on world coinage as early as 119 AD on coins stuck by the Roman Emperor Hadrian.

The reverse side of the coin also features a new radial sunburst design, first added to the Britannia collection in 2017. Not only does this design add spectacular imagery, it also acts as an anti-counterfeiting measure.

The one troy ounce platinum weight as well at the 99.95% purity of the Platinum Britannia are fully guaranteed by the British Government.
