1988 Britannia Proof Set, in protective case, with numbered Certificate of Authenticity
In 1988 the Royal Mint issued a strictly limited number of stunning four-coin Britannia Proof sets. The set contains 1.85 total ounces of gold. What distinguishes this Britannia from her illustrious predecessors is the fact that the designer, Philip Nathan, depicted his personification of Britain as a standing figure. This upright pose is reminiscent of the much-acclaimed design by the Royal Mint engraver G.W. De Saulles for the Edward VII silver florin issued between 1902 and 1910, and the Trade Dollar first struck in 1895 for circulation in the Far East.
Although Philip Nathan has chosen to depict Britannia in an unfamiliar standing pose, she is nevertheless unmistakable as the personification of Britain. It is this continuity of a time- honored traditional theme that will ensure popularity and a rightful place among the Britannia’s portrayed by eminent and renowned designers over the past three hundred years. The obverse of the 1988 Britannia depicts the regal portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf. The inscription and the border of the obverse have, however, been specially modified to match the style of the reverse.
Note: only 6,500 four-coin Britannia 1988 Proof Collections were issued for worldwide distribution.
