NGC PF 69 Deep Cameo 2021 Quartered Arms Gothic Crown from the Great Engravers series.

The Great Engravers Series

Billed as a celebration of historic coinage design, The Royal Mint's Great Engravers range has proved hugely popular.

The series kicked off with Una and the Lion: recreating an engraving by Royal Mint Chief Engraver, William Wyon, first used in 1839 celebrate Queen Victoria's coronation. The limited edition 2019 reissue offered buyers a chance to own a 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 - his 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.

The 1847 Gothic Crown

We were excited to learn that The Royal Mint would be focusing on the Gothic Crown for their third Great Engravers collection.

This Victorian coin got its name from its intricate, medieval-style details. Working from a design by 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 has chosen to strike the 1847 coin's obverse and reverse separately, both paired with Jody Clark's portrait of Elizabeth II.

High Grade Silver Coin

The original Gothic Crown measured 38.00 millimetres across and this example, struck to proof standard, is just a little larger with a 40.00 millimetre surface. This silver coin is from a limited mintage of 4,006. It's made from 62.42 grams of .999 fine silver.

We are offering a small number of examples that have been professionally graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Company as PF 69 Ultra Cameo, indicating a great strike and nearly imperceptible imperfections. The 'Ultra Cameo' designation denotes deeply mirrored surfaces that contrast attractively with frosted devices.

This coin is also available 'raw' with its box of issue and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

We're big fans of the original Gothic Crown and we've previously shared a detailed blog post, exploring the history and design of this iconic coin: The Gothic Crown: Victorian Art and the Road to Decimalisation.
