Britannia

Britannia is the personification of Great Britain. She has been featured on coins dating all the way back to 119 AD when she appeared on coins of the Roman Emporer Hadrian.

Britannia is often seen as a symbol of hope, unity and pride for Britain. She is often used as a figurehead of the values and achievements of the nation.

Britannia featured on the reverse of 50p coins until a new design was brought in, in 2008.

She is often, but not always, shown with a lion at her feet. This represents the British Lion shown in the Royal Arms.

First £50 Coin

This is the UK's first £50 coin. The Royal Mint have continued their "face-value" series, whereby coins are sold for their face value (e.g. £50 for £50). The first £100 coin was issued in 2014 and the first £20 in 2013.

More Expensive than the Mint?

Whilst we pride ourselves in being cheaper than the mint in most cases, we are unable to source these coins at a discount. We have managed to get a small supply in stock for informational purposes and to photograph. We are offering them for sale but with a premium. This is because we're a business and we don't work for free! We also only have a small supply and therefore will likely not have them in stock for long.

Design

Both the obverse and reverse designs are by the Royal Mint engraver, Jody Clark. The reverse shows Britannia standing with a tamed lion by her feet. A globe can be seen in the background. This design was used on the proof version of the 2014 Britannia.
The obverse of the coin shows the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, only introduced in 2015.

Presentation

The coin has an issue limit of 100,000.

It comes in a colourful presentation card.

Worth Less than 50?

The coin was sold by The Royal Mint as part of their 50 for 50 scheme. The coin contains one troy ounce of silver meaning it has an intrinsic value of less than £10* - less than one fifth of its face value!
