This brand new 1 oz 2024 vision of Philip Nathan’s Britannia, which was originally created in 1987, showcases the brand new effigy of King Charles III.
The 4 security features include surface animation which provides a background for Britannia, reflecting the flow of waves as the coin is moved. Between this and the banding of the coin you will find micro-text with the wording – DECUS ET TUTAMEN, or AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD, describing the features that both decorate and protect the coin. A latent feature in the lower hand segment of the coin switches between a trident and a padlock based on the viewer’s perspective – emphasizing her maritime strength and the coin’s secure nature. Finally, details like the Union Flag on Britannia’s shield have been specially highlighted with tincture lines. These new design elements combine to create not only a stunning Britannia, struck in 999.9 fine gold, but also one of the most visually secure coin in the world.
