New 2021 1 ounce Gold Britannia

The 2021 1 ounce Gold Britannia has been given a makeover by The Royal Mint with added security features to make counterfeiting even harder.

There have been four main changes to this year’s Gold Britannia. The first enhancement on the coin’s reverse side is the updated background wave design, which appears when light is reflected at a certain angle on the coin. The second addition to the Britannia Gold Coin includes smooth tincture lines on Britannia’s shield, which bears the Union Flag. The third and most important add-on is a holographic image of a padlock in the bottom left; this changes between a trident and a padlock when the coin has tilted. Last but not least, micro-text in the Latin phrase ‘DECUS ET TUTAMEN’ meaning ‘An Ornament and a Safeguard’ is etched along the inner rim of the coin.

The obverse of the 2021 Britannia 1oz Gold Coin features the bust of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and inscriptions include “Elizabeth II”, D.G. REG F.D” meaning Queen by the Grace of God and also shows the currency value of 100 Pounds; however the actual gold metal price of the coin is much higher than this denomination.

All the above changes to the Britannia 2021 UK Gold Coin have enhanced the coin’s appeal, aesthetics, and security.
