Nearly two thousand years ago, a figure was shaped to symbolize a nation and its people. The Romans imagined a noble, graceful warrior and placed her on coins with the legend, Britannia, the new province they had claimed. Britannia has been re-imagined many times and she has appeared on the coins of every British monarch from Charles II through to Her Majesty The Queen. The artists of each age have depicted her in ways that reflect the ideas and style of their time. Through every incarnation, Britannia has taken on more layers of meaning and come to embody the spirit of a nation.
The 2020 Britannia is a revelation. Created by artist James Tottle, the new design is respectful of the past but also contemporary. Britannia stands facing into the wind, a trident planted into the rocks as the waves crash around her. On her arm she holds a shield featuring the head of a lion.
