2022 St Helena Masterpiece Gothic Crown 1 oz Silver Proof Coin
STRICTLY LIMITED TO ONLY 2000 COINS WORLDWIDE. William Wyon produced some of the most iconic coin designs of the Victorian era. His 1838'Young Head' portrait was so well liked by Victoria that it graced the coins of her reign for nearly 50 years. His 1839 Una & the Lion used characters from Edmund Spencer's medieval poem The Faerie Queene to represent the young Queen Victoria and the powerful nation under her control, and is widely regarded as one of history's most beautiful coins. In 1847, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Victoria becoming Queen, a silver crown was released with a new portrait by Wyon. In a shift from his Neoclassical roots, Wyon's obverse design was influenced by the fashionable Neo-Gothic movement, and with a similarly styled reverse design by Scottish artist William Dyce, it became known as the'Gothic Crown'. This classic work of Gothic Revival art has now been faithfully remastered by our master craftsmen for the modern collector, available now as this limited edition 1oz Silver Proof Coin. 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.
