Britannia is symbolic of the United Kingdom, Great Britain, and the British Isles at large. Her figure first came to the forefront during Rome’s conquest of the Isles. The Romans named the province Britannia and often used the same term to refer to its residents. Over time, she became of symbol of the growing country’s might as it unified itself and projected power outward, while vigilantly defending the homeland.
On the obverse of the 1 oz British Gold Britannia Bar is a right-profile portrait of Britannia with her trident to control the seas and a Corinthian helmet she wears for protection. A portion of her shield is visible which bears upon it the Union Jack flag of Great Britain.
The reverse face of the British Gold Britannia Bar includes the seal of the Royal Mint of England, the oldest continuously operating mint in Europe. The design elements on this side include sea waves at the bottom and a six-digit serial code which starts with “RM” for Royal Mint.
