On the obverse side of 2022 Proof St. Helena Gothic Crown Coins is Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is depicted here facing to the right and wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown that queens wear during their coronation. This portrait came from designer Jody Clark in 2015. It was the first time in over 100 years that the Royal Mint commissioned one of its own engravers to produce a portrait for British coinage.
The reverse design of 2022 Gold St. Helena Gothic Crown Coins features a replica version of the original Gothic Crown artwork. In this incredibly dense and detailed image, we see the Order of the Garter arms surrounded by four shields representing the Royal arms. Behind this imagery, there is a rose, shamrock, daffodil, and thistle. These flowers are official emblems of the four nations of the United Kingdom. Along the edges of the coin are the Latin words tueatur unita deus anno dom mdcccxlvii, meaning as May God Guard these United Kingdoms, Year of Our Lord 1847.
William Wyon was a favorite of Queen Victoria thanks to his iconic Young Head portrait of 1838. As such, to celebrate her 10-year anniversary as Queen of England, Victoria commissioned Wyon for a new variation on this popular effigy. While Wyon was at work on this, he collaborated with Scottish artist William Dyce on the Gothic Revival obverse image. The result was The Gothic Crown, a coin that stands the test of time as both a collector’s item and a remarkable work of art.
