Product Description

The 2024 1/2 oz Britannia Gold Coin carries on British tradition, which affectionately once featured a likeness of Queen Elizabeth II. Since Her Majesty`s passing in 2022, The Royal Mint has continued this tradition with a profile of the Queen’s successor, her son King Charles III. Long Live the King!

Coin Features:

  • These coins are shipped to your door in protective flips or plastic-sealed sheets of 20 coins per sheet. 
  • The reverse of the coin boasts four distinct security features.
  • Each coin has 1/2 Troy ounce of .9999 pure gold and is in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
  • The face value of these coins is 50 pounds sterling (GBP), fully guaranteed by the British government.
  • The obverse side showcases a portrait of King Charles III.
  • On the reverse side, you’ll find the iconic Britannia.

Historical Context:

When the British Gold Britannia series was initially introduced in 1987, it featured various denominations, including 1 ounce, 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce, and 1/10 ounce gold coins. At that time, the coins were composed of Crown gold alloy, equivalent to 22-karat gold, with a gold content of 91.67%. In 2013, the Royal Mint increased the gold purity to 24-karat gold, making them .9999 pure gold.

Packaging Options:

2024 1/2 oz Britannia Gold Coins are available in two packaging options. You can purchase individual coins, each safely housed in protective flips. We offer plastic tubes containing 10 coins or mint-sealed boxes containing 100 coins for larger quantities. Each box accommodates 10 separate tubes, and all coins are in pristine Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Obverse Design:

The obverse of the 2024 British Gold Britannia features a new portrayal of King Charles III, unveiled in 2022 by artist Martin Jennings. This design marks the first-ever portrait of the new king and presents a left-profile relief image without a crown.

Reverse Design:

The reverse side of the 2024 1/2 oz Britannia Gold Coin showcases Britannia, a powerful female allegorical figure. She stands in a frontal view, holding a trident in her right hand, and resting her left hand on the Union Jack shield while grasping an olive branch.

What Our Customers Are Saying

“Professional, helpful and no stress approach made my purchase very simple. Fast shipping, low prices and great follow up. The coins were better than expected. I would recommend MBE to anyone looking to purchase precious metals. You will not find a more honest and sincerely company out there.”
“I recently purchased silver bars from MBE and the exchange went wonderfully. The staff was polite and helpful, the product was exactly what I expected, and I had it in my hands in just a few days after ordering. I would definitely buy from MBE again.”
“I was very pleased with my dealings with Midwest Bullion Exchange. I did not feel rushed on the phone with the representative and felt free to ask any questions. My father who has dealt with a lot of other companies that deal in precious metals was also impressed with this business.”
