Britannia is a symbol of Great Britain that represents a fierce female warrior. The symbol of Britannia was introduced into Great Britain with the Roman invasion and is based on the Roman goddess Minerva however, Britannia is often mistakenly connected with Boudica, the Celtic Iceni monarch who led insurrection against the reign of the Roman empire.
During the reign of Queen Victoria, Britannia made its ultimate assertion as a representation of British strength and became the ultimate representation of Queen Victoria's expanding British dominion. The Royal Mint originally created the Gold Britannia coin in 1987.
