The 2023 1/2 oz Great Britain Gold Britannia is minted from .9999 pure gold and features His Majesty King Charles III.
In 2023, the Royal Mint Britannia series marks a historic moment as the first year featuring two reigning monarchs. Following the limited production run of 2023 Britannias featuring the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the mint released the 2023 Britannia showcasing the image of His Majesty King Charles III.
After Queen Elizabeth II's passing in 2022, the Royal Mint introduced a fresh obverse design, replacing the Queen's portrayal with the image of King Charles III. Of note, the Queen was depicted with her right-profile while King Charles III is depicted with his left-profile.
The Royal Mint introduced the Britannia Series in 1987 featuring the Britannia figure as a symbol of the strength and integrity of Great Britain.
