These backdated / miscellaneous gold Britannia captures the vision of Philip Nathan’s Britannia, created in 1987, which features many security features. Surface animation 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. The obverse of the coin showcases the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
These 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.
