The Britannia Collection from The Royal Mint has become known for showcasing various artists, who create their own interpretation of the icon. Britannia portrayed holding Poseidon’s Trident also represents Britain’s sea power. The Britannia first appeared on coins of the emperor Hadrian over 2,000 years ago when the province of Britannia, which she came to personify, was established.
