2021 Gold Britannia Quarter Ounce

The 2021 Gold Britannia Quarter Ounce

The Gold Britannia has for some years been a popular choice for 1oz gold bullion coins, but as gold prices have risen to new highs the quarter-ounce gold Britannia has become popular as it is priced nearer to the Gold Sovereign coin and so is more affordable to many collectors and smaller investors.

Unlike the 22 carat gold Sovereign, the Gold Britannia quarter ounce is 999.9 (99.99%) gold. The gold content in 1/4 Troy ounce, with a diameter of 22mm.

The coin, denominated as £25, is intended as a bullion coin and carries several new security features that have been copied from the Gold Britannia. The features are:

  •     An image that changes from padlock to trident as the coin moves (known as a 'latent' image).
  •     Micro text saying 'an ornament and a safeguard'.
  •     Surface animation gives the effect of sparkling waves.
  •     The shield and Union flag on the shield have tincture marks.
Together, these new security features make the coin very difficult to counterfeit.

The Reverse shows the standing figure of Britannia by Philip Nathan.

The Obverse shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

These coins are available (subject to stock) from the Royal Mint Shop.

Which Mint: The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint is the designated place for the UK to mint coins. It dates back well over 1000 years and is a Government-owned company. 

Formed in the reign of Alfred the Great about the year 886, during the period 1279-1812 it was generally referred to as The Tower Mint as it was housed at the Tower of London. The Master of The Royal Mint has included famous figures such as Sir Isaac Newton.

Since 2010 it has operated as Royal Mint Ltd, a company owned by HM Treasury, under an exclusive contract to supply all coinage for the UK although it also produces medals and coins for other countries. It is currently located at Llantrisant, Wales.

There is also an on-line shop at The Royal Mint Shop.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
The United Kingdom (UK) is the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is often refered to as Great Britain (GBR). It has a long, rich history.

The orignal coinage was Pounds, Shillings and Pence but since decimalisation on 15 February 1971, it is £1 = 100p, that is One Pound = 100 pence. The coinage of the UK is also a long history, the Royal Mint being established as long ago as 886AD when coins were hammered. Today there is perhaps 30 billion coins in circulation, and many (numismatic) collectors coins and sets are issued frequently in gold, silver and other metals.
