In 1847, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Victoria, a new silver crown was released featuring a new portrait of Victoria by The Royal Mint’s Chief Engraver, William Wyon, on its obverse, and a detailed heraldic cruciform design by Scottish artist William Dyce on its reverse. With its styling and lettering heavily influenced by the popular mid-19th Century Neo-Gothic revival, it became known as the ‘Gothic Crown’.

This third issue in our Masterpiece Collection sees the 1847 ‘Gothic Crown’ faithfully remastered down to the finest detail. There is perhaps no better canvas for the combined skills of William Wyon and William Dyce than this impressive 100mm coin, the elegance and precision of both designs emphasised by its stunning proof quality finish.

Issued as a strictly limited edition, this 2022 Gothic Crown One Kilo Silver Proof Coin is presented in a bespoke luxury case accompanied by a certificate which guarantees its authenticity, its quality, and its exclusivity.

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.

We are proud to release this 2022 recreation of the beautiful Masterpiece Gothic Crown design on gold and silver coins. The obverse side of each coin, is the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II (Jody Clark) commonwealth design.

 

This coin will be shipped on or before 28th February 2022.

Details-

A Masterpiece of Gothic Revival Artistry.

William Wyon’s portrait of Queen Victoria fills the obverse, her crown at the top and shoulders at the base interrupting the trefoil edge motif. Victoria faces left wearing the St. Edward’s crown, the first time a monarch had worn a crown on British coins since the days of Charles II. The edge inscription, engraved in medieval ‘Blackletter’ style, reads ‘Victoria dei gratia britanniar.reg.f:d.’, an abbreviation of ‘Victoria dei gratia Britanniarum Regina Fidei Defensatrix’, which translates as ‘Victoria by the Grace of God, Queen of the Britons, Defender of the Faith’.

William Dyce’s reverse design is a cruciform made up of four shields displaying the royal arms of the nations of the United Kingdom. The design is decorated with the floral symbols of each of the four nations, much like Victoria’s robes on the coin’s obverse. At the centre sits the arms of the Order of the Garter, featuring the motto ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’, or ‘Evil to him who evil thinks’
