For centuries, Britannia has been a symbolic watchful protector of Britain. Originally an import from Rome following the conquest of the British Isles, Britannia was later established as the personification of British power during the 15th and 16th centuries. To this day, she remains a crucial figure in the culture and legacy of the United Kingdom. Right now, 5 Gram British Gold Britannia Bars are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

The obverse of 5 Gram Gold Britannia Bars contains an image of Britannia. In this design by the Royal Mint’s Jody Clark, we see the Roman deity holding both a trident and a shield. Her hair flows to her shoulders and atop her head sits a Corinthian helmet. This striking image is set against a background of swirling lines.
On the reverse side of British Gold Britannia Bars, you will find the Royal Mint seal. This official emblem contains a quartered shield like that found on the Royal arms. Beside it are the words The Royal Mint. Beneath these details, you will find the bar’s weight, purity, and metal type listed.
The name Britannia originates in the Latin word Britannicae, which the Romans used to describe the recently conquered British Isles. This is also the source of the word Britain, an island containing England, Scotland, and Wales. Today many use the word Britain interchangeably with the United Kingdom, which was established in the 1707 Acts of Union. Today, Britannia is a vital cultural figure in the country, representing national strength, valor, and pride.
