These 2021 Gold Graded 1 oz Britannia Coin PCGS MS-68 are issued by The Royal Mint and graded by expert numismatists at PCGS.
The 2021 Britannia coins are the first to feature some new, high-tech security features. One such feature is the small latent image on the bottom-left of the coin, which acts as a hologram, seamlessly transitioning between a trident and a padlock depending on the angle at which the coin is held. Additionally, a micro-text border encircling Britannia bears the inscription "DECUS ET TUTAMEN", translating to “an ornament and a safeguard”.
Moreover, the field of the coin now boasts surface animation, with micro-waves creating lines in the background, and tincture lines added to showcase the intricate play of colours and patterns on the metal.
This coin has been evaluated by the Professional Coin Grading Service and awarded an MS-68 grade, denoting its mint state, which is the third highest grade attainable.
