Gold Britannias Type Sets
Type Set of all 4 Designs
In September 2003, the Royal Mint suddenly produced a type set of all four gold Britannia designs to date in uncirculated bullion grade. This may not excite collectors of proof Britannias who may already have all 4 designs, but for those enthusiasts who collect only bullion coins this news will create a ripple of excitement because the 1997 chariot design had never yet been seen in the bullion version, to the best of our knowledge.
It also raises the question whether the Royal Mint have produced backdated coins, a practice which we do not consider to be entirely ethical, or whether they have had these coins stockpiled somewhere in their vaults, without managing to have them stolen. We will attempt to discover more*, but knowing the Royal Mint's customary secrecy, it may require the equivalent of a Hutton enquiry to establish the truth.
