The world renowned Britannia one ounce gold coin was first issued by the British Royal Mint in 1987, and throughout its history has always contained one troy ounce of fine gold. Britannia coins have a nominal value of £100 in the United Kingdom, where they are classed as legal tender, but they are traded at a much higher price on the bullion coin market. These coins are also available in fractional sizes of one half, one quarter, one tenth and one twentieth of a troy ounce, as well as in larger sizes of five troy ounces, as introduced in 2013.
This 2001 Gold Britannia 1oz Coin is one of the older editions of the Britannia coin, and as such it bears a more classic design. With an impressive fineness of 916.7 and a timeless look, it is the ideal choice for newcomers to the gold coin market. The front design shows the figure of Queen Elizabeth II, while the reverse portrays the classic Britannia image. Finely crafted and traditionally designed, this 2001 Britannia coin makes the perfect gift for gold bullion coin collectors.
