The Masterpiece Collection from East India Company is back, this time featuring the incredible 1847 Gothic Crown design. This historic coin was created at the behest of Queen Victoria in honor of her 10th anniversary as Britain’s Queen. She commissioned Royal Mint designer William Wyon to craft the coin.

The Gothic Revival that inspired the Gothic Crown coin has extremely distinctive features that will be recognizable to many. Among them are pointed arches, steeples, and ornate decorative stonework. The Revival came about for two primary reasons. The first was because of dissatisfaction with Neoclassical designs, which exchanged Gothic aesthetics for a more clean, formal appearance. The second was because of the Industrial Revolution, which created in many a longing for the simpler, quieter lifestyle of the Middle Ages. As such, Medieval Gothic architecture returned to satisfy this yearning amongst the general public.

Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse of 2022 Proof Silver St. Helena Gothic Crown Coins.

The famous Gothic Crown design is shown on the reverse of 2022 2 oz St. Helena Gothic Crown Coins. This cruciform image was created by Scottish artist William Dyce. It features four shields in a cross-shape with emblems matching those found on the Royal coat of arms. In the middle, we see the Order of the Garter arms surrounded by the four flowers of the United Kingdom. You’ll find beautiful Blackletter words in Latin inscribed along the rim.
