2024 Britannia 1/10oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin
The Royal Mint is famous for making precious metals products that blend traditional craft and innovative technology. For 2024, the Britannia bullion coin displays this combination to redefine security in the bullion market. As strong and as beautiful as ever, Philip Nathan’s 1987 Britannia design has been enhanced and protected just as the micro-text that borders the design states – ‘Decus et Tutamen’, which translates as ‘An ornament and a safeguard’.
Surface animation provides a background to Britannia, reflecting the flow of waves as the coin is moved. A latent feature in the lower segment of the coin switches between a trident and a padlock based on the viewer’s perspective, emphasising Britannia’s maritime strength and the coin’s secure nature. Finally, details like the Union flag on Britannia’s shield have been highlighted by tincture lines, making this tenth-ounce 999.9 fine gold coin one of the most visually secure coins in the world.
The reverse side of the coin features an image of Lady Britannia walking at sunrise, with a trident in one hand and an olive branch and shield in the other. Around the outside of the coin are the words ‘BRITANNIA’, followed by the coin’s year of minting. The coin’s weight as well as the purity of .9999 fine is also located on the outside of the coin.
The obverse of each coin features the first coinage portrait of His Majesty King Charles III. Also features the coin’s face value located on the bottom right, and ‘CHARLES III’ located on the bottom left of the coin.
Each 2024 Britannia 1/10oz gold bullion coin is presented in a protective Air-Tite A16 coin capsule. Multiples of 25 are provided in a tube.
