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. Drawing on our unrivalled legacy, The Great Engravers continues with the first of two coins paying homage to the Gothic Crown. 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. After announcing himself with the Three Graces in 1817 and producing Una and the Lion at the start of Queen Victoria's reign, William Wyon RA created the Gothic Crown at the very peak of his power, with both its obverse and reverse designs the work of a consummate genius.
