The new 2022 gold and silver Britannias are now available to order on our website. Following on from 2021’s design, the 2022 coins share much of the same design, including the high-tech security features that appeared on the previous release.

2022 Gold and Silver Britannias

New Britannia Coins for 2022

The 2021 Britannias were officially released on 12th October 2021, and we are expecting our first delivery of the  2022 gold and silver coins being released in the coming weeks. If last year is anything to go by, the platinum coins should be released in early 2022.

2022 Gold Britannias

The design for the 2022 gold Britannia continues with the same fantastic design we saw in 2021 and you might not notice if it weren't for the year. The coin bears the same security features as last year’s such as:

  • A latent image which works like a hologram and changes from a padlock to a trident when the coin is positioned at different angles. A latent image first appeared on British coinage in 1997 on the £2 coin.
  • Surface animation - Micro details on the coin combine to create the illusion of waves rolling behind the figure of Britannia. These are created using advanced micro-engraving lasers.
  • Micro-text - The inscription DECUS ET TUTAMEN surrounds the figure of Britannia. This translates to ‘AN ORNAMENT AND A SAFEGUARD’ and is also created using specialist micro-lasers.
  • Tincture lines – This depicts patterns and colours on the surface of the coin, such as on Britannia’s shield.

2022 Silver Britannias

The 2022 silver Britannias will also feature the same design characteristics as the previous edition.

2022 Platinum Britannias

Platinum Britannias

The 2021 platinum Britannia did not have any of the security features that the gold and silver coins, and we don’t know yet whether the new version will either. Hopefully, the Royal Mint will see fit to include them on the new coin

We’ve not received any word when they will be released but we expect they will be available in early January.
