Characteristics of the 1/10 oz Britannia Charles III gold coin

Issued by the Royal Mint, famous Britannia coins are well known to collectors and numismatists: they owe their name to the allegorical figure of the British nation adorning their reverse side.

The 1/10 ounce Britannia gold coin has been issued every year since 1987 by the Royal Mint. The 2023 edition, featuring King Charles, has a purity of 999‰. It measures 16.5 mm in diameter and weighs 3.110 g. Its face value is £10.

Obverse (front) side of the 1/10 oz Britannia Charles III gold coin

The face of Charles III, son of the late Queen Elizabeth, adorns the obverse of the 1/10 ounce Britannia gold coin. He is surrounded by the inscriptions "CHARLES III D·G·REX·F·D" and "10 POUNDS", which represent the coin's face value.

This portrait was created by British sculptor Martin Jennings, who chose to depict the sovereign's left profile without a crown, unlike previous Britannia coins adorned with the face of Elizabeth II.

As with all previous editions, the 2023 Britannia gold coin features a woman with a proud face and a helmet, symbolizing the British nation. In her left hand, she holds a shield engraved with the flag of the United Kingdom, while in her right hand, she holds a trident, below which an hologram appears, depicting a padlock through light effects.

The inscriptions "BRITANNIA 2023", "1/10 OZ", and "999.9 FINE GOLD", which indicates the purity of the gold, surround the coin. The most attentive will notice the inscription "Decus et Tutamen", which protects the coin from counterfeiting attempts.
