The Gothic Crown is an 1847 coin with a design that many consider to be an artistic triumph. The coin came about when Queen Victoria petitioned engraver William Wyon to design a new crown in honor of her 10th anniversary on the throne. With the help of artist William Dyce, Wyon created the Gothic Crown, whose stunning reverse design is now featured in the latest edition of the Royal Mint’s Great Engravers series.

The Gothic Crown design is a truly remarkable work of art. While it was engraved by William Wyon, the detailed image itself is credited to Scottish artist William Dyce. At the time, the neo-Gothic movement was in full swing, with artists across many mediums crafting works in the tradition of the Medieval Gothic style. Dyce drew inspiration from this revival of the Gothic form and created the legendary cruciform image that has now been remastered for the Royal Mint’s Great Engravers series.
