To this day, Britannia remains a symbol of strength and courage. She is illustrated as a goddess and very clearly resembles the warrior-queen Boudicca. Boudicca was the Queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe, who in 60 AD led an uprising against the Roman forces. After her courageous act, she became a symbol of British culture and heritage. She is the embodiment of her nation. Britannia first appeared on British coins in 1672, and she continued to grace us with her image appearing on pennies that were issued under every monarch until 1797. She was then promoted to the 50 pence coin, where she remained until 2008.
