The micro-text provides both decoration and protection. Britannia's shield bears the Union flag, which is accented with tincture lines. For more than 1,100 years, The Royal Mint has innovated to create coins that are beautiful, secure and trusted. In 2023, Britannia, the symbol of Britain, continues to lead the way in defining security in the bullion market.
This latest evolution of the icon combines Philip Nathan's acclaimed interpretation with four groundbreaking security features to create the most visually secure bullion coin in the world. These additions both decorate and protect the coin, just as the micro-text that borders the design states -'Decus et Tutamen', which translates as'An ornament and a safeguard'. In the lower left-hand of the design, below Britannia's flowing gown, is a trident to represent her naval history. As the viewer changes their perspective this trident becomes a padlock, emphasising the coin's secure nature. Surface animation behind Britannia reflects the movement of waves and fine details such as the Union flag on Britannia's shield have been highlighted by tincture lines.
