Anyone with an interest in art history will find plenty to appreciate about the Gothic Crown coin of 1847. At the time, Neoclassical styles, inspired by Ancient Greek architecture, was seen as a compliment to the rapid changes and advancements of the Industrial Age. Many in the public were uncomfortable with these advancements, which prompted a return to the Medieval Gothic style. Sensing this switch in popular styles, artist William Dyce embraced this revival and designed the coin’s reverse with many neo-Gothic flourishes. The coin was an instant hit with the public.
Queen Elizabeth II is seen on the obverse of 2022 5 oz Silver St. Helena Gothic Crown Coins. This fifth-generation portrait of Her Majesty was designed by the Royal Mint’s own Judy Clark in 2015. Along the rim of the coin are the words Elizabeth II, D G Regina, St. Helena, Five Pounds.

Along the border of the coin you’ll find Latin inscriptions that translate to May God Guard these United Kingdoms, Year of Our Lord 1847.
