Metal: Solid 22 Carat Gold. Weight: 34.05 Grams / Diameter: 32.69mm. Presented: Certified Slabbed and Graded by PCGS as PR69 DCAM. Having submitted an impressive selection of drawings for his original 1987 design, eminent sculptor Philip Nathan was asked to develop one of them further for the celebratory issue.This drawing, he transformed into a beautiful plaster model approved by the Royal Mint Advisory Committee, now gracing the reverse of these special coins. Philip Nathan has explained that his new image of Britannia was intended to compliment the original, being designed to be very much a pair.
Reflecting a belief that Britannia should visibly represent qualities of strength and dignity, as well as continuing her long and distinguished association with the sea, Philip Nathan's new dramatic design features the majestic figure of Britannia standing proud and bold in her chariot, being drawn along the seashore by two mighty horses. The elegant portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Raphael Maklouf continues to grace the obverse. In keeping with the previous Britannia Gold Coins, the attractive crenellated rim surrounding the inscription on both the obverse and the reverse has been retained. These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
