2019 Great Britain £25 1/4-oz Platinum Britannia Proof
Limited Edition Platinum Britannia Proof
Take any major world coin that features a changing one-year-only design, and how many do you think would be struck? A few thousand, perhaps? Not so with this extremely limited 2019 Quarter-Ounce Platinum Britannia Proof, which has a worldwide mintage of just 250 pieces!
What makes this tiny mintage even more extraordinary is the design itself – an homage to the Una and Lion coin, struck exactly 180 years ago in 1839. That coin used Queen Victoria as the model for Una – and 2019 is also the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth.
Even Britannia celebrates a major anniversary this year, having first appeared on Roman coins around A.D. 119, making this her 1,900th anniversary as a coin design.
- ONE YEAR ONLY – This design of the Britannia proof is one year only and won’t be seen again in the foreseeable future!
- LOW WORLDWIDE MINTAGE – Only 250 of these immaculate, one year only designs, will be struck for the entire world.
- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY – The 2019 Britannia design celebrates three different anniversaries. One is the 180th anniversary of the first Una and Lion coin, originally struck in 1839. These proofs also celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria. Lastly, even Britannia herself has a celebration with the 1,900th anniversary of Britannia as a coin design.
- HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE – Britannia has a history that goes back all the way back to the Roman Empire. Now she is seen as the female personification of Britain herself.
- ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES – Each of the proofs comes in a Royal Mint presentation case along with a Royal Mint numbered certificate of authenticity.
- PROOF QUALITY – Using selected polished dies and planchets, these coins have a beautiful mirrored proof finish.
- LEGAL TENDER – The 2019 Great Britain Britannia proofs are a quarter ounce of 99.95% pure platinum and are marked at £25 legal British tender.
