A new ‘high-tech’ Britannia gold coin is being launched this month – on the back of a boom in demand for gold and a surge in its price.

The new 24-carat one troy ounce of gold coin has been produced with ‘micro-detail’ so the waves in the background appear to roll as you look at them from different angles.

The illusion of moving waves is a security measure introduced to make it difficult for forgers to copy. 

There are others, including a disk by the bottom of the regal figure’s dress that also acts like a hologram so you can see either a padlock or trident on it, again depending on what angle you look at it from.
