COIN ONE of the New Gothic Crown designs struck by The Commonwealth Mint is paying homage to the original, delightful portrait of Queen Victoria, with the legend in Gothic script. COIN TWO shows the reverse design using the four shields of the original coin. Our Head of Design at the Mint, Jody Clark, has now produced a wonderful portrait of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II in the gothic style and this portrait, personally approved by Her Majesty, has been used for the obverse of this new masterpiece. The wording around Her Majesty’s portrait has also been designed in the original Gothic script and gives this New Gothic Crown a classic look that will enthral collectors for generations to come.
This modern masterpiece will be treasured by collectors all around the world and will be a fitting tribute to the past and present-linking William Wyon, perhaps the greatest Victorian coin designer together with Jody Clark, the most widely collected UK coin designer of the 21st century. An extremely limited edition, with only 250 examples of this 1kg pure silver masterpiece having been struck.
