The proof Britannia gold sets are usually released each year in August or later.
Britannia proof sets have been issued every year since 1987.
New Design for 2007
The reverse of the gold Britannia is a new design for 2007. Royal Artist, Christopher Le Brun has created a new image of Britannia seated with a lion by her side. The image of Britannia is similar to that on the Victorian farthings.
The coins in the sets have on the obverse the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley, approved for use on United Kingdom coins from 1998.
The Royal Mint have also produced an uncirculated version this year. We have put them on their own page 2007 Gold Bullion Britannias. The first bullion Britannia to be released since 2003.
