The 2016 Britannia 1oz uncirculated gold coin is the UK's most popular CGT exempt one ounce bullion investment coin.
These coins are sold as an investment product.
On 2nd March, 2015, The Royal Mint unveiled a new effigy of the Queen, designed by Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark. Whilst the 2015 proof Britannias had the new design on their obverse, the bullion coins kept the fourth design, by Ian Rank-Broadley. Therefore, the 2016 bullion Britannia is the first to feature the fifth portrait.
