Brand new 1 Ounce platinum British Britannia coin, released by the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom.
2019 is the second year that the British Britannia 1 Oz Coin coin has been available in platinum to precious metals investors.
The British Britannia coin series was first introduced in gold only. However, the series has grown increasingly popular among gold and silver investors, and was released first in silver, and then in platinum. The silver and platinum British Britannia coins are both available in 1 Ounce sizes.
The front of each coin features an image of Queen Elizabeth II, with the coin's face value of £100 incribed around the edge. The reverse side of the coin features an image of Lady Britannia, walking by the sea with a triden in one hand and a shield in the other.
The Royal Mint produces both the British Britannia and British Sovereign coin series, which are very popular with precious metals investors. In 2018, a 10 Ounce Valiant silver coin was also released.
British Britannia coins are especially popular for British investors, because there is no capital gains tax on these coins when they are sold.
In addition to the platinum British Britannia, there are a number of other platinum coins currently available that are also popular with precious metals investos, including the platinum American Eagle, platinum Maple Leaf and platinum Philharmonic.
