In honour of the final year of the 20th century, 1999 saw the release of the Britannia £100 Gold Proof Coin, a gem in the realm of numismatic collectables. This coin, crafted from one ounce of the finest 22-Carat Gold, stands as a testament to the enduring legacy and prestige of British coinage.

The reverse side of the coin proudly features the iconic image of Britannia, the personification of Britain, in a majestic pose that captures her strength and enduring spirit. This design, rich in symbolism, portrays Britannia with her traditional attributes: the shield, emblematic of protection; the trident, signifying maritime sovereignty; and the olive branch, a symbol of peace. Such imagery eloquently conveys the values and heritage of the British Isles, resonating deeply with collectors and patriots alike.

The obverse of this distinguished coin is graced with a sophisticated and accurate portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the work of the renowned sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. This portrait adds a layer of regality and dignity to the coin, linking it to the lineage of British sovereign coinage.

Striking in its execution, the coin was produced using advanced numismatic techniques. Special attention was given to the selection of dies and the polishing of blanks, ensuring that every detail of Britannia’s figure and the Queen’s effigy was rendered with exceptional clarity and lustre. The result is a coin that not only captures the imagination with its aesthetic beauty but also stands as a marvel of minting excellence.

With its limited mintage, the 1999 Britannia £100 Gold Proof Coin is a coveted item among collectors, offering both scarcity and desirability. Its composition of solid, fine 916.7 Gold emphasises its premium status and the intrinsic value of the material from which it is made.

This coin is more than just a piece of currency; it is a symbol of Britain’s legacy, embodying the strength, dignity, and resilience of Britannia Herself. For collectors and enthusiasts of British heritage, it represents a valuable and meaningful addition to their collections, capturing the essence of Britannia’s spirit in pure Gold.
