Based on the reverse of the original coin – an ornate quartered shield design that has a long tradition in British numismatics. It is a fitting tribute to one of the most talented engravers to work on British coinage.
When was the coin design first released?
First issued in 1847, William Wyon Gothic Crown is inspired in part by the Scottish artist William Dyce.
Who were The Great Engravers?
Chief Engraver from 1828 until he died in 1851, many collectors consider William Wyon RA to be one of the finest artists to have ever worked on British coinage.
The obverse and reverse designs are works of genius and were produced by engraver William Wyon at the very peak of his creative career.
Coveted by Victorian numismatists and mostly collected straight from the Bank of England, only 8,000 silver along with a handful of gold coins were struck.
William Wyon created one of the world’s most beautiful coins.
Precision detailing complements the artistry of the original. Created using the die Wyon himself used, remastered to remove historical blemishes, this modern interpretation breathes new life into this cherished design.
