2018 Great Britain 100 Pound 1-oz Platinum Britannia NGC GEM Uncirculated First Releases
Britannia Rules in 99.95% Pure Platinum for the First Time EVER!
Britannia, the embodiment of a nation and icon of maritime sovereignty, has symbolized Britain for centuries, appearing on coins dating all the way back to the Roman Empire. More recently, her name and image have graced the United Kingdom's Britannia bullion coin series since 1987. Philip Nathan's design of Britannia walking along a wind-swept shore, trident in one hand with branch and shield in the other, won "Coin of the Year" honors for its debut.
Originally starting as a gold bullion series, Silver Britannias began production 10 years later in 1997 with the same breathtaking design. However, the promise of a Platinum Britannia always seemed just under the surface. Collectors have been waiting for such a coin for years, and the Royal Mint's recent platinum additions to the Queen's Beasts series was seen as a signal for Britannia to take the stage next. Now, we're proud to say the wait is finally over! Introducing the latest first from the Royal Mint -- the One-Ounce Platinum Britannia Bullion Coin!
- CLASSIC, ENDURING DESIGN -- Standing on Royal Mint gold and silver bullion for more than 30 years, Philip Nathan's Britannia still continues to entrance collectors with her focused gaze and lifelike detail.

- EXPERTLY MINTED, HIGHLY PURE PLATINUM -- Each Britannia is struck in one ounce of 99.95% pure platinum by the artisans of the Royal Mint, resulting in coins that exhibit superb details and lustrous finishes.
- UK LEGAL TENDER -- Each 1-oz Platinum Britannia is 100 pounds sterling United Kingdom legal tender, as struck into each coin's obverse along with Jody Clark's most recent profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In addition, you'll find the Queen's portrait is set against an elaborately textured guilloche field -- a new feature for Royal Mint bullion coins in 2018!
