1 Ounce Gold Britannia
The current year 1 ounce gold Britannia is the latest in a series of British gold bullion coins issued by the Royal Mint. The gold Britannia contains exactly 1 troy ounce of gold, is legal tender within the United Kingdom and has a face value of 100 British Pounds. Gold Britannias are also minted in 5 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce, and 1/10 ounce sizes, though the 1 Ounce Gold Britannia is the most common. First minted in 1987, the Gold Britannia has seen increased production in order to meet the higher global investor demand, and the 1 Ounce Gold Britannia has already been extremely popular with buyers who invest in gold.
Details of the 1 oz Gold Britannia
The 1 oz Gold Britannia is unique among gold bullion coins, being struck from 99.99% pure gold instead of the more-common 99.9%. Only the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf shares this distinction. The same design elements are repeated with the Silver Britannia -- the obverse of the Gold Britannia depicts Queen Elizabeth II in profile, along with her titles abbreviated along the edge of the coin. The reverse features a changing design of the Britannia figure, one of the iconic symbols of the United Kingdom. Also shown on the reverse are the mint year, the weight, and the gold fineness.
Investing in Gold Britannia Coins
Investors have been buying Gold Britannias online in large numbers, chiefly because of their supreme gold fineness. Given the current spot price of gold, most investors anticipate a surge in gold prices, so highly-pure coins like the Gold Britannia are great instruments to increase the value of gold in a bullion portfolio.
Like several other gold bullion coins, however, the design and history of the Gold Britannia also have found appeal among the numismatic community. Coin collectors, gift buyers, and even history buffs have also been known to buy the Gold Britannias online. Specialty gold coins like the Gold Britannia are almost always less expensive to acquire online than in brick-and-mortar stores.
