Personification of Britain

The Romans made Britannia a symbol of Britain, and she first featured on coins circa AD 119 under the rule of Emperor Hadrian. In Elizabethan times, she came to represent Britain’s maritime power. Since the reign of Charles II, Britannia has featured on the reverse of coins during the reign of every ensuing British monarch.

Modern interpretation

The coin portrays a modern interpretation of Britannia. The figure is poised before a crescent moon and an oncoming wave into which her plumed helmet flows to represent her historic connection with the sea. As well as the inscription ‘BRITANNIA 2024’, the reverse includes the coin’s weight and fineness.
