The 2022 1 ounce Gold Britannia has been given a makeover by The Royal Mint with added security features to make counterfeiting even harder.

The first enhancement on the reverse side of the coin 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 is the inclusion of smooth tincture lines on Britannia’s shield which bears the Union Flag. The third and one of the most important add-ons is a holographic image of a padlock in the bottom left, when the coin has tilted this changes between a trident and a padlock. Last but not the 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.

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.
