Last updated 5 years ago
Previous Next British Britannia

The classic image of Britannia appearing on the reverse of the Brittania originated on Roman coins nearly 2000 years ago. Designed by sculptor Philip Nathan, "Standing Britannia" was introduced in 1987 on the gold Britannia coin, one of the world's most beautiful bullion coins. Throughout history, the symbol of Brittania has also been portrayed seated on various British coins, including copper halfpennies and farthings of Charles II from 1672, bronze coins and fifty pence coins. From 1901 to 1935 she appeared standing on British Trade Dollars, and from 1902 to 1910, on the florins of Edward VII.
