Gold Britannia coin of one tenth of an ounce from the year 2017. It belongs to the British mint, The Royal Mint.
This is one of the flagship products of The Royal Mint, the mint of the United Kingdom, one of the most prestigious in the sector.
The cross depicts the figure of the goddess Britannia, with a bas-relief of a woman wielding a trident, a shield with the flag of the country and an olive branch. The image is not as polished in its details as seen in future editions, and seems to be in movement thanks to the position of the clothing and the hair protruding from her Roman shield, which are displaced to the left and add dynamism to the scene.
Around it, the background of the 2017 Britannia gold coin has a completely flat surface, without any decorative elements and leaving it empty.
On the face is the face of Queen Elizabeth II, whose background is shown in a style very similar to the cross, with the dots evenly distributed. Most notable are the crown jewels, which contrast perfectly with the background, and her hair, which has quite a few curving, intertwining lines.
Although simple, the edge of this coin is spectacular: it is the simple fluting formed with regular vertical stripes that give a sense of geometric precision.
This 2017 Britannia coin is made of gold, is a quarter ounce, weighs 3.11 grams, has a diameter of 16.50 millimetres and has a face value of 10 pounds.
