2019’s most prestigious Sovereigns

On the tenth anniversary of the accession of Queen Victoria an unusual commemorative crown was designed. The influence of the Gothic revival resulted in a magnificent new effigy of Queen Victoria created by the most outstanding engraver of his day, William Wyon. This inventively beautiful Gothic style was repeated by Wyon on the reverse, creating a coin which remains highly sought after and a key masterpiece for collectors of British coinage.

As a tribute to this unique coin, the 2019 Double Sovereign takes its inspiration from the majestic reverse design of the Gothic Crown featuring the four crowned shields representing the primary realms of Great Britain. Situated between the angles of the shields, roses, a shamrock and a thistle can be found. In the centre, the Order of the Garter bears the French inscription ‘HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE’ replicating Wyon’s original composition. Surrounding the design in a similar gothic style as its predecessor, the words ‘DIRIGE DEUS GRESSUS MEOS’ are repeated.

The 2019 Double Sovereign pays tribute to the legendary Gothic Crown which remains one of Queen Victoria’s sought-after and most memorable coins.
