The Industrial Revolution, for all its advances, did not sit well for many. It meant things like noise, air pollution, and bad working environments. As such, a nostalgia for a quiet Medieval lifestyle emerged, causing neo-gothic architecture to spring up all throughout Britain. This movement formed the basis for the reverse design of the original Gothic Crown coin of 1847. Today, numismatists recognize it as one of the most beautiful coin designs ever conceived.
