2022 Masterpiece Gothic Crown 1oz Silver Proof Coin
|One Masterpiece. Two Master Craftsmen.
William Wyon is widely regarded as one of history’s great coin designers. Born in Birmingham, England in 1795, he took the position of Assistant Engraver at The Royal Mint in 1816. His career flourished and in 1828 he was appointed Chief Engraver. His reputation is forever linked to the reign of Queen Victoria, producing portraits which followed her journey from a 13-year-old princess to a dignified head of state, including the Neo-Gothic portrait that graces the obverse of the 1847 Crown.
Reverse designer William Dyce, primarily a painter, was one of the forefathers of art education. In 1837 he moved from Edinburgh, where he was in charge of the School of Design, to London to become head of the new Government School of Design, which later became the Royal College of Art. In 1844 he was appointed Professor of Fine Art at King’s College London, before collaborating with William Wyon on what is now recognised as one of the most artistically significant coins of the 19th Century; the ‘Gothic Crown’.
