Upon the request of Queen Victoria, Royal Mint engraver William Wyon set out to make a new coin in honor of Her Majesty’s 10th anniversary on the throne. While Wyon worked on a variation of his famous Young Head portrait, he petitioned the help of Scottish artist William Dyce for the reverse design. Dyce, inspired by the Neo-Gothic artistic movement of the day, created the elaborate Gothic Crown cruciform image. It is a true marvel to look at and remains without a doubt one of the finest coins ever struck at the Royal Mint.
