The Royal Mint - Britannia first appeared on coins nearly 2,000 years ago as a symbol of a province newly brought under the control of Rome. The noble warrior that graced the coins of Hadrian is the source of inspiration for a modern icon that embodies the spirit of a nation.

Royal Mint New Release: 2020 Britannia Proof Coins


The idea of Britannia re-emerged in the Elizabethan era but only returned to coins in 1672 during the reign of Charles II. From that time to the present day she has featured on the coins of every British monarch. Artists of each era have depicted Britannia, on coins and elsewhere, in ways that reflect the ideas and style of their time. Through every incarnation, this enduring icon has taken on more layers of meaning and come to embody aspects of a culture and people.

The 2020 Britannia has been created by artist James Tottle. His design is both respectful of the past and a contemporary interpretation. Britannia stands facing into the wind, a trident planted into the rocks, and her gaze focused on the horizon.

The Britannia 2020 collection is available as a Brilliant Uncirculated edition alongside a range of precious metal editions, coin sets and limited edition prints, signed by James Tottle, that include a coin.
