The Royal Mint, with a history of over 1,100 years, is the primary British manufacturer of currency for the United Kingdom in addition to its prominent production of precious metals products. The company creates unique coin collections and special edition coins in addition to its standard range of products.
Lady Britannia is one of the best icons of Great Britain, well-known to millions throughout the world. Britannia was created more than 2,000 years ago during the Roman colonization of the British Isles and featured on British coinage for more than 350 years. Britannia garnered newfound appeal again in 1987 by unveiling her current design on the Britannia bullion coin series. SwissBullion.eu is now carrying the full range of British Britannia Bars which feature a traditional image of Britannia. They are available for purchase for delivery and storage.
The Royal Mint Britannia Bars
The Royal Mint's Britannia bullion bar features a similar design to that on the Britannia coin. Britannia clutches her trident as she gazes over the seas, guarding the shores of the UK, in Jody Clark's unique design. It is a perfect symbol of the power and stability that bullion investors seek when investing in precious metals.
Britannia bars are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 1g to 100oz. They are stuck in 999.9 fine gold, 999 fine silver or 999.5 fine platinum. Britannia gold bars have a serial number and are packaged in safe, Britannia-branded certicards. Recently the Royal Mint has expanded its range of Britannia Bars to include platinum bars as well as a range of sizes of gold bars.
The Britannia 1oz Platinum Bar
The Royal Mint has launched its first platinum bullion bars depicting Britannia to commemorate Her Majesty The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Each bar has a contemporary rendition of Britannia created by numismatic artist Jody Clark, whose likeness of The Queen has appeared on all UK coins since 2015.
Britannia is seen wearing a Corinthian helmet and holding symbols of power and protection, including a trident and a shield with the Union flag. These bars are available in unique jubilee-themed packaging to commemorate Her Majesty's Jubilee until the end of 2022.
The Britannia 100g Platinum Bar
For bullion investors looking to purchase platinum in larger sized bars or in gram denominations, the Royal Mint has also launched a 100 gram platinum bar. This bar features the same design and packaging as the 1 ounce platinum Britannia bar. Gram denominated bars are more popular with European investors, whereas ounce sizes bars are more popular worldwide.
Britannia 1oz Gold Bar
The 1 Ounce Britannia gold bar was the first gold bar to be launched in this series and was instantly popular. Each bar is made from 1 ounce of 999.9 pure gold and is emblazoned with Britannia's unmistakable symbol of British pride and courage. The front of each bar features the Royal Mint logo at the top of the bar, with the bar's weight, fineness and serial number beneath. The background on the bar's front features a wave pattern with an image of waves at the bottom of the bar. The reverse side of the bar features an image of Lady Britannia. This bar is packaged in secure, Britannia-branded blister packaging to ensure its protection from tarnish and scratching.
Britannia 1 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram & 20 gram Gold Bars
A smaller range of Britannia bars has more recently been launched by the Royal Mint. These include the 1 gram, 5 gram, 10 gram and 20 gram Britannia gold bars. These bars, like the 1 Ounce gold bars, feature the same design. These bars each come with their own serial number and are sealed in a certicard. The Roman god from whom the British nation takes its name remains an enduring symbol of the country's pride, power, and growth. These gold bars have a flat edge and are supplied in secure, Britannia-branded blister packaging for safe transit and storage. On the box, a transparent, detachable covering protects the blister pack.
Britannia 50 gram and 100 Gram Gold Bars
For investors looking to purchase Britannia gold bars in larger sizes, the Royal Mint has launched the 50 gram and the 100 gram gold bar. Like the smaller sized bars, these bars are flat-edged and made from 999.9 pure gold. Each bar is individually numbered and packaged in safe, Britannia-branded blister packaging. The design remains the same as the 1 Ounce gold Britannia bar. Britannia grips her trident as she watches over the waters, guarding the coast of the United Kingdom.
Britannia 10 Oz and 100oz Silver Bars
The Britannia series was first launched in silver in a 10 ounce and 100 ounce sized bar. The 100 ounce bar is particularly unique in that it is very rare to find such an elegantly designed bullion bar in such a large size. Most 100 ounce bars only feature a stamp of the brand, with the bar's purity, weight and serial number. This 100oz bar is struck in 999 pure silver and serves as a beautifully designed investment product with the benefit of financial security.
Britannia 100g Silver Bar
The Britannia 100 Gram silver bar was introduced at a later date, in an effort to supply investors looking to purchase silver bullion bars in smaller denominated sizes. Each bar is individually numbered and packaged in safe, Britannia-branded blister packaging. A transparent, detachable covering protects the blister during shipment on the box. It may be withdrawn after the product is received without impacting the product's initial value.

The Royal Mint has been producing bullion coins for several hundred years, and still manufactures the gold Sovereign, which is the oldest gold coin currently still being minted.
