The Gothic Crown coin by William Wyon and William Dyce was inspired by the neo-Gothic movement of the 19th century. If you examine the coins design, Gothic elements include the decorative cross, the ornate background, and the Blackletter Latin inscriptions along the edge. This Gothic Revival sprung up in part because many people in Europe were feeling disillusioned by the Industrial Revolution. As a response, Gothic art became extremely common. Its ornate design elements and themes could be found in architecture, music, literature, and, in this case, currency.
When you purchase 2021 2 oz Proof British Gothic Crown Quartered Arms Coins in this JM Bullion online listing, you will receive a coin housed inside a stunning presentation box. These proof coins have been specially struck for a mirror-like effect on the surface. Included with each purchase is an information booklet and a Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse of 2021 2 oz Proof Silver Gothic Crown Quartered Arms Coins is Queen Elizabeth II. This popular effigy shows Her Majesty facing the right side with the George IV State Diadem resting atop her head. Jody Clark is credited as the designer of this 5th Generation portrait of the Queen.
The reverse side of 2021 2 oz British Silver Gothic Crown Quartered Arms Coins features a replica of the cruciform image found on the original Gothic Crown coin. Four shields form the shape of a cross in this design. Each is decorated with Royal arms imagery and included in the center are the Order of the Garter arms. In the background, we see four flowers: the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Welsh daffodil, and the Irish shamrock. Along the rim are Blackletter inscriptions in Latin.
