The 1847 ‘Gothic Crown’ is one of the 19th Century’s most intriguing coins; a classic work of Gothic Revival art created by the combined skills of an engraver at the top of his game and a highly talented artist.

William Wyon’s portrait of Queen Victoria dominates the obverse; her crown at the top and shoulders at the base interrupt the edge inscription, which is engraved in the medieval ‘Blackletter’ style. Victoria wears the St. Edward’s crown, the first time a monarch had worn a crown on British coins since the days of Charles II.

William Dyce’s reverse features a cruciform made of four crowned shields displaying the royal arms of the nations of the United Kingdom. The shields are separated by national floral symbols; roses for England and Wales, thistles for Scotland and shamrocks to represent Ireland.

This limited-edition Silver Proof 5oz Masterpiece Collection edition features a faithful remaster of the 1847 ‘Gothic Crown’, delivered in a luxury presentation case with a certificate of authenticity.

Now available, our third coin release of The East India Company Masterpiece Collection originally designed by the famous English engraver William Wyon in partnership with William Dyce shown highlighting the designs exquisite detail.

Details-

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’.
