Britannia is the female personification of Britain, an enduring symbol that has appeared on coinage for centuries. Throughout shifts in art and politics, technology and popular culture, she has reflected the spirit and values of the nation. 

The Britannia Collection from The Royal Mint has become known for showcasing various artists, who create their own interpretation of the icon. For 2018, David Lawrence brings the Britannia back to a more classical feel, channeling the spirit of Ancient Rome with her helmet. The Britannia first appeared on coins of the emperor Hadrian over 2,000 years ago during the Roman invasion.
