The half Troy ounce Britannia was introduced by the Royal Mint in 1987 and has since played a major role in the investment market. The design of the 1/2 troy ounce Britannia attracts both collectors and investors. The coin shows an image of the 'Britannia', the Roman female deity and the personification of the country of Great Britain. The 1st image of 'Britannia' appeared on British coins in 1672!

1/2 Troy ounce Britannia
Besides the half Troy ounce gold Britannia, with a nominal value of £ 50, there are also 1 Troy ounce gold Britannia coins available with a nominal value of £ 100. Smaller coins in the same series are the quarter Troy ounce gold Britannia, with a nominal value of £ 25 and  the 1/10 Troy ounce gold Britannia with a face value of 10 pounds sterling.

22 carats
The half troy ounce Britannia has a purity of 22 carats which is 91.7%. This is because the gold is alloyed with silver, a characteristic that gives the gold Britannia coins an attractive yellow color.

As the coin’s face is adorned with a different design on every odd year, the actual coin may differ from the one pictured here.
