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.
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.
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.
The coin has an issue limit of 100,000.
It comes in a colourful presentation card.
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!
