This coin set has three of the one-year type gold Britannia coins issued in 2018, presented in a Royal Mint case with a booklet that charts Britannia’s journey through history to the present day. It includes the half-ounce, quarter-ounce and the rare tenth-ounce coin, with an original design by acclaimed artist and popular coin designer David Lawrence.
The Royal Mint says:
"A unifying symbol, the image of Britannia was revived for the coinage of Charles II in a bid to inspire the nation in the face of impending crisis. Even today she remains a rallying point during uncertain times or moments of celebration. Over the years the Britannia coin has served as a canvas for some of Britain’s most talented artists. For 2018, David Lawrence, whose designs include contributions to our five-year series commemorating the centenary of the First World War, turns to Ancient Rome for inspiration, restoring Britannia to her roots in this unashamedly classical portrait."
