The history of the Britannia gold coins series can be traced to the expansion of the Roman Empire. During the expansion, conquered provinces were symbolically represented by female figures as a way of restoring peace and order and instilling a sense of unity.

As a result of the conquests, the Roman Empire extended northwards, and the Roman army crossed over to reach British shores. The Britannia design made a pioneering appearance on Emperor Hadrian coins minted over 2,000 years ago.

The Britannia design started appearing on coins again in 1672 during the reign of Charles II, and has done so with all the subsequent monarchs. Lady Britannia is considered a symbol of Britain’s national pride. The Britannia design is recognizable throughout the world and the gold coins are the most preferred around the world.

Why Invest In Gold Coins

Gold coins historically do not lose value as a result of inflation. For example, gold sovereigns purchased 100 years ago still have roughly the same purchasing power. A savings account with the cash value of a sovereign in it from 100 years ago would essentially be worthless today.

The stock market is characterized by volatility and it is important for investors to build a diversified portfolio. This protects against negative market movements. Gold coins traditionally are one of the best diversified assets that an investor can buy, as the gold price traditionally increases when the stock market loses value.
