On the reverse of the 2019 1 oz British Platinum Britannia Coin is the design of Britannia created by Philip Nathan in 1987 for the gold version of the coin. Britannia’s image is one of unity and strength for the British people. She first appeared on coins during the reign of Hadrian following the Roman Empire’s successful conquest of the British Isles 2,000 years ago.
As the Romans conquered provinces throughout Europe, female personifications were assigned to those regions to promote unity within the empire and make identification of regions easier. By 1672 and the reign of King Charles II of England, the image of Britannia had returned to British coins and remains there to this day on these bullion platinum coins.
