William Wyon, who was the Chief Engraver for the Royal Mint between 1828 and 1851, is considered one of the greatest designers in the history of coin artistry. Wyon was part of a dynasty of engravers, as his uncle Thomas, cousin Thomas Jr., and son Leonard were also celebrated artists at the Royal Mint. Wyon began his apprenticeship in 1816, and the following year produced the Three Graces. While not as refined as his later works, the inexperienced Wyon nonetheless exhibited enormous talent with his debut engraving.
