The 2024 Britannia Coin Design

The Royal Mint is unveiling the new 2024 UK Britannia coins in gold and silver. Anticipated by collectors worldwide, the launch promises to add a shining chapter to the legacy of Britannia coins.

The 2024 Britannia coin design

Symbolising Britain's strength and integrity, Britannia is an enduring icon that has been used in the UK for over 2,000 years.

The reverse side of the new 2024 Britannia coin will feature Philip Nathan’s iconic design showing the figure of Britannia standing by the ocean, her hair and robes blowing in the wind. This internationally recognised design is exclusive to The Royal Mint.

Since 2021, the Britannia coin has incorporated four new groundbreaking security features:

  • Laser engraved wave pattern on the background
  • Micro text on the inner rim
  • Tincture lines on Britannia’s shield
  • Changing padlock/trident hologram

These extra security features ensure that the Britannia is much more difficult to replicate, making it one of the most visually secure coins in the world.

The obverse side of the 2024 Britannia coin will bear the uncrowned portrait of King Charles III, designed by Martin Jennings.

Weight, tax status, and minting excellence

Like all gold and silver Britannia coins, each 2024 Britannia will be struck by The Royal Mint in 999.9 fine gold or 999.0 fine silver.

2024 UK Britannia coins will be available in a range of weights including 1oz gold, 1/2oz gold, 1/4oz gold, 1/10oz gold, and 1oz silver. A 1/4oz silver coin is also set to be available early next year.

UK Britannia gold and silver coins are a legal tender coin in the UK, and are therefore exempt from Capital Gains Tax, making them a popular choice each year.

As an official partner of The Royal Mint, each brand new Britannia coin comes direct to us from The Royal Mint in Llantrisant, South Wales.


When are the 2024 Britannia coins set to be released?

The new 2024 UK Britannia gold and silver coins are expected to be released for pre-order on 19th September 2023, and are expected to be dispatched from 26th September 2023. The 1/2oz and 1/4oz gold coins will be dispatched from early October 2023.
