2021 Great Engravers Gothic Crown Royal Arms 1 Kilo Silver Proof. Billed as a celebration of historic coinage design, the Great Engravers range has proved hugely popular for The Royal Mint. The series kicked off with Una and the Lion: recreating an engraving by Royal Mint Chief Engraver, William Wyon, first used on the 1839 gold Five Pound, issued to celebrate Queen Victoria's coronation.The limited edition 2019 reissue offered buyers a chance to own a rare and sought-after design in a range of metals and denominations, including the largest gold coin the Mint had ever offered (to that point). An earlier design by Wyon - The Three Graces - was the subject of the second instalment in the Great Engravers series. Originally crafted for an 1817 pattern coin, the success of the remastered 2020 Three Graces inspired similar offers from the East India Company and the Commonwealth Mint as well as much speculation about the next release.
Well, the news is out now and we were very excited to learn that The Royal Mint will be focusing on the Gothic Crown for their third Great Engravers collection. This Victorian coin got its nickname from its intricate, medieval-style details. Working with Scottish artist, William Dyce, William Wyon engraved an ornate crowned portrait and a quartered arms motif utilising a very different art style to his earlier masterpieces.
Only a small number were issued, mostly to collectors, though the design was later used on other coins, including the infamous Godless Florin. As well as its Gothic Revival style, the Gothic Crown is different from previous designs offered in the Great Engravers series in that both sides of the original coin are admired by numismatists. To create legal tender coins, The Royal Mint will strike the 1847 coins obverse and reverse separately, both paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II.
