Marking a significant year with a true national icon
2021 is unquestionably a hugely significant year for our nation.
Mark the year with the United Kingdom’s premier annual coin issue – that features the nation’s most iconic image that has a history dating back 2,000 years – Britannia.
Brand new design
The Britannia coinage has proved exceptionally popular ever since it was first released in 1997. In the more than 20 years since, the coin has built up an extremely faithful following from collectors throughout the world, which has resulted in regular sell out issues being confirmed at the Royal Mint.
With that in mind the 2021 release has been long anticipated – even more so when you consider the significance of this year for our nation with the recent 95th Birthday of our Queen. And the new year coin features the introduction of a breath-taking new interpretation of the icon that is Britannia – for 2021 she is accompanied by a lion by her side.
Limited edition release
The 2021 Gold Quarter Ounce Britannia has been released with an edition limit of just 775 coins – despite the importance of the year. This significance, coupled with a tiny mintage of just 775 coins, has seen the Quarter Ounce Gold Proof Britannia quickly sell out. This comes as no surprise – especially when that limit is compared against other UK Gold Coin issues such as the Sovereign, which has a mintage over 10 times greater. In addition, being struck in 24 Carat Gold, the Britannia is also purer than the UK Sovereign.
Despite this sell out, Harrington & Byrne was successful in securing an allocation of this coin in this unique year for the United Kingdom, to offer collectors. Housed within official Royal Mint Presentation Case and with Certificate of Authenticity, the new year Britannia is already a firm contender for the coin issue of the year due to the low mintage and quick sell-out – secure yours before it is too late.
