In 1847, Queen Victoria commissioned Royal Mint engraver William Wyon to produce a new coin in honor of the 10th year of her reign. Wyon took to creating the obverse, while artist William Dyce designed the iconic reverse cruciform design. Together, they created one of the finest coins ever struck at the Royal Mint. Now, the famous Gothic Crown design has been remastered for the Royal Mints Great Engravers series. Today, you can buy 2021 Proof British Gothic Crown Quartered Arms 2 oz Silver Coins online from Provident Metals.

Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse of 2021 Proof Gothic Crown Quartered Arms 2 oz Silver Coins. Jody Clark was only 33 when he designed this incredible effigy, making him the youngest engraver to have a portrait of Her Majesty accepted for coinage. Youll find inscriptions along the edge that read 2021 ELIZABETH II D G, REG, F D, 5 POUNDS.
The Dyce/Wyon Gothic Crown design is found on the reverse of 2021 Proof British Gothic Crown Quartered Arms Coins. This cruciform design includes Royal arm emblems on each portion of the cross, with the Order of the Garter arms sitting in the center. Flowers in the background include the rose, thistle, daffodil, and shamrock, representing England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland respectively. Latin inscriptions in Blackletter font are shown along the edge.
Traces of the Gothic Revival are most found in architecture in England and elsewhere in Europe and the United States. Design elements include arched doorways, stained glass windows, spires, and towers. These ornate features were part of a cultural attempt to harken back to the simpler Medieval era when industry was less intrusive in the lives of everyday people. It was also a response to the minimalist neo-classical architecture that was dominating the 18th and 19th centuries.
