Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue 2018 Gold Britannia Proof with an Oriental Border?

The Royal Mint has issued a spectacular proof version of the 2018 Britannia design which features an Oriental style border. The modified Britannia takes its inspiration from the Chinese-themed rooms within Buckingham Palace and the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Mintage of the 32.69 mm diameter proof struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold is limited to only 500.

Powerful Britannia Imagery

The reverse features Philip Nathan's standing Britannia design, with an ornate Oriental style border replacing the traditional legend. The inscriptions "ONE OUNCE 999.9 FINE GOLD" and "BRITANNIA" are instead located in the mirrored field on either side of Britannia's trident, with "2018" and "NATHAN" engraved in the rock landscape.

Centered on the obverse is Royal Mint Designer Jody Clark's elegant representation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II, D.G. REG. F.D., 100 POUNDS."
