A fixture on coins for centuries, Britannia is more than just a symbol, she chronicles the history of the British Isles. Inspired and iconic, she channels the spirit of a nation. Her strength stems from her poise, her shield offers protection and her gaze is trained on the future, driving progress onward.
Each year Britannia is recast, presenting an opportunity for a British artist to reimagine our most famous national symbol. For 2018, David Lawrence returns Britannia to a more classical feel in a composition that channels the spirit of a nation. We recently caught up with David to find out a little more about his design.
