In July of 1987, under the authority of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, The Royal Mint introduced the esteemed United Kingdom Britannia £50 Fifty Pound Gold Proof Coin. This prestigious coin, encapsulated and graded by NGC with the highest distinction of PF70 Ultra Cameo, marks a significant addition to any collection.

The Britannia series, available in denominations of £100, £50, £25, and £10, represents a storied lineage of British numismatics, with each denomination corresponding to 1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, and 1/10oz of fine gold, respectively. The 1987 issue celebrates the legacy of Britannia, a symbol of Britain’s enduring spirit and integrity, with a limited issuance of the half-ounce gold proof variant.

Britannia’s lineage on British coinage extends back to the Roman era, first appearing under Emperor Hadrian and later becoming a staple of the nation’s coinage since the copper halfpennies and farthings of Charles II in 1672. The 1987 design by Philip Nathan marks a historic moment, presenting Britannia standing with trident and shield, reminiscent of George William De Saulles’ early 20th-century design.

The coin’s obverse features the acclaimed portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf, ensuring its status as legal tender. Struck to the Royal Mint’s exacting proof standards, with specially prepared dies and highly polished planchets, this coin not only commemorates a significant British era but also embodies the pinnacle of minting excellence.

Celebrate a significant moment in British numismatic history with this year-dated Britannia coin, a masterpiece of art and heritage, presented in 22 Carat gold and certified by NGC as PF69 Ultra Cameo.

Great honest advice

Great honest advice. I have used Bullion House over the past year and have found them to be professional and polite.

Small purchase arrived super quick

I ordered something small through the website as I was hesitant to make a big purchase as I haven’t used this company before, but the price was good for what I wanted so I thought I would try it out. The order arrived safely. They took the time to answer any questions I had, which I appreciated. I would definitely purchase from them again.

Bullion House are just super to deal with.

I just wanted to say that the guys at Bullion House are easy to deal with, informed, and very helpful. So, I am very, very pleased. Their service delivery blew me away. I recently ordered some Sovereigns which I expected to take a few days to arrive but the very next morning they turned up, not bad for pm order.

I will of course continue to rely on them for my bullion investments.

First purchase from this dealer

First purchase from this dealer. Coin arrived promptly in good condition with a follow-up phone call to make sure all was well and to chat about my interests/ investment aims. Would happily use again
