The Gold Britannia 2014 coin is made of 0,9999 fine gold. This is a departure from the historic "Britannia" gold standard of 0.9167 fine gold used for British gold coins for centuries. Gerrards are a Royal Mint authorised distributor.

The Gold Britannia coin is one of the most beautiful coins whether we are talking about the proof or the bullion version. The both versions of the Britannia have been issued every year since 1987, the only difference being that the proof coins are available to investors or collectors as part of complete sets. From January 2000, the investment gold coins became VAT free in the United Kingdom. They are also exempt from Capital Gains Tax.

The Britannia Gold coin illustrates an attractive design for both investors and collectors alike. The obverse of the Gold Britannia coin has went through two phases: on the coins issued until 1998 we will find the "Third Portrait" of Queen Elizabeth II; from then on until today the Britannia Gold coins are produced featuring the "Fourth Portrait" of Queen Elizabeth II which is more mature.

The reverse of the Gold Britannia coin is a tribute to the Britannia image dating from the time of the Roman Empire making from the British coin the first coin to depict this image. That has made the Gold Britannia coins one of the most beautiful worldwide. There have been 7 designs for the reverse of the Britannia Gold coin: a standing Britannia in 1987 which has also become known as the classic design, a seated Britannia, Britannia in helmet, Britannia driving a chariot which is a commemorative design for the 10th anniversary of the Gold Britannia coin in 1997, and for 2011 the design of Britannia among the folds of the Union Jack Flag.

In keeping with tradition Gold Bullion Britannia coins are struck in 22 carat gold, which is eleven twelfths gold and one-twelfth alloy. 2012 mark the 25th anniversary of the fIrst Britannia struck in gold.
