Introduction

Tavex is proud to present the flagship gold coin of The Royal Mint - the 1-ounce British Britannia Gold Bullion Coin. Nearly 2,000 years ago, a figure was shaped to symbolise a great nation and its people. The Romans imagined a noble, graceful warrior and placed her on coins with the name of Britannia. Britannia being the new province the Romans had claimed.

Britannia has been reimagined numerous times as she has appeared on the coins produced of every British monarch from Charles II through to His Majesty the King. The artists of each age have depicted her in unique ways that reflect the ideas and aesthetics of designing. Through every distinct incarnation, Britannia has taken on more layers of meaning. She has come to embody the spirit of the British nation.

Britannia gold bullions were added to The Royal Mint’s Bullion portfolio in the year of 1987. At the same time, the global Bullion market was growing rapidly. Philip Nathan, a medalist and sculpturist, created a distinctive and communally supported interpretation of Britannia. She represents an icon with a strong maritime influence. Standing windswept in a classical gown, waves at her feet; trident, shield and olive branch in hand – symbols that are instantly recognisable in the precious metal international market. The modern face of the British national Bullion coin and a symbol of strength and tradition.

Additionally, British Britannias act as a legal tender. This ensures our customers have a diverse selection of UK gold coins to choose from.

The Royal Mint

The Royal Mint is one of the oldest and most respected government institutions of Great Britain. Its long operating history, by some estimates over 1100 years, and coupled with its production of many of the world’s most famous coins, like the gold sovereign, has contributed to making it one of the best known and renowned mints in the world. Since 1279 when the mint established its operation in the Tower of London, it has been responsible for the production of coins of the United Kingdom. Its reputation for excellence and trust was further reinforced when Sir Isaac Newton became Master of the Royal Mint. During his tenure at the Royal Mint, he was responsible for moving the British pound to the gold standard.

Today the Royal Mint is not only responsible for minting coins used for circulation in the UK, but is likewise producing official coinage for more than 60 countries in the world. However, the most important and renowned coin ever to come out of its minting presses has without doubt been the sovereign gold coin which even today is being produced at its minting facility in the town of Llantrisant, Wales, UK. The accuracy and quality of the modern gold sovereign coin is the same as it was two hundred years ago, containing 22 karats of fine gold and weighing exactly 7.98805 grams. The popularity of the gold sovereign has likewise not changed, as confirmed in 2014 when the Royal Mint ran out of 2014 sovereign gold coins due to exceptional demand. The gold sovereign is without doubt one of the foremost gold coins ever to be produced and the fact that almost 100,000,000 sovereigns gold coins have been minted since 1957 is a testament to their excellence and trustworthiness. The reputation of the gold sovereign coin as “the chief coin of the world” will live on for centuries, as savvy investors will always prefer to keep a portion of their wealth in gold coins which are secure, liquid and trustworthy.
