2008 Britannia Reverse Design

The reverse design is exclusive to the 2008 Britannia. It was designed by John Bergdahl and shows Britannia's skirt transitioning into the waves of the sea. Bergdahl wanted to convey Britannia as being elemental, depicting her as being at one with the wind and sea. Britannia holds a shield and trident. A lighthouse is visible in the background.

Issued most years by The Royal Mint, the gold proof Britannia coins are popular coins with both investors and coin collectors. 

PF-70 Grade

The perfect coin, as minted. Has no trace of wear, handling, scratches or contact with other coins from a (5x) magnification. For more information about NGC grading please see our blog: Coin Grading and Explanation - UK, US, CGS, PCGS NGC.

What is an Ultra Cameo Grade?

This coin has also been authenticated as being ULTRA CAMEO, meaning that the fields are deeply mirrored and the design is heavily froste, creating a bold contrast.


The fourth coinage portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of the coin. The portrait was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.



The design is often referred to as the 'Lighthouse Britannia', 'Britannia Skirt' or 'Britannia Wave' design. The reverse was designed by John Bergdahl and bears the description
