Originally depicting the iconic Queen Victoria in a medieval style with her portrait facing left, the Gothic Crown designed by the renowned artist William Wyon was one of the most popular coin releases of the Victorian Age.
First issued in 1847 on the Silver Crown, The Gothic Crown has gone on to become one of the most popular numismatic pieces of all time. Often issued in extremely small quantities, The Gothic Crown is a rare numismatic piece that is one of the most highly demanded coins by collectors.
Celebrating the work of one of the greatest coin designers in history, we are extremely excited to announce the release of a Limited-Edition Gothic Crown which combines the art of its original Neo-Gothic Design, with the modern expertise of The East India Company.
A beautiful recreation of the original craft of the 1847 Gothic Crown, this Incredible 5oz Silver Proof Coin features a medieval-inspired reverse design, showcasing the Queen in St Edward’s Crown, an ornament that had been worn in royal coronations since the 13th century. Depicted on the edge of the coin are inscriptions which use the ‘blackletter’ style which was popular in literature and carvings during the Middle Ages.
William Dyce’s artistic ability can be observed on the reverse of this Special Release, featuring a unique depiction of the Royal Arms of The United Kingdom, surrounded by stunning floral symbols which represent the highlighted nations beautifully. Showcased in incredible detail in the centre are the arms of the Order of the Garter – the order is recognised as the oldest and most senior order of chivalry in Britain.
This Numismatic Masterpiece has been issued under the authority of St Helena, and is sure to be popular amongst modern collectors.
Pay tribute to the design expertise of one of the greats in William Wyon with this Incredible Release!
Your breathtaking Coin will be housed in a Premium Pristine Black Box, displaying this edition in style!
