Description

The proud figure of Britannia has represented Britain for centuries,  symbolising values held dear by the nation, such as strength, resilience  and fortitude. The Romans made Britannia a symbol of Britain, and she  first featured on coins circa ad 119 under the rule of Emperor Hadrian.  Disappearing after the wane of the Roman Empire, the figure re-emerged  in the Elizabethan period and 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. Perpetuating Britannia’s legacy on coins, the Britannia 2024 UK
commemorative coin features the official coinage portrait of His Majesty  King Charles III on its obverse. For the reverse, award-winning French  author and illustrator Marie-Alice Harel has created a modern interpretation  of Britannia. The figure is poised above an oncoming wave into which her  plumed helmet flows to represent her historic connection with the sea
