The proud figure of Britannia has represented Britain for centuries, symbolising values held dear by the nation, such as strength, resilience and fortitude. The Romans made Britannia a symbol of Britain, and she first featured on coins circa ad 119 under the rule of Emperor Hadrian. Disappearing after the wane of the Roman Empire, the figure re-emerged in the Elizabethan period and came to represent Britain’s maritime power. Since the reign of Charles II, Britannia has featured on the reverse of coins during the reign of every ensuing British monarch.
