2021 Gothic Crown 1 Kilo Silver Proof Coin

2021 Gothic Crown One Kilogram Silver Proof Coin

The reverse of this coin will feature a design previously seen on the Victoria gothic crown. The 2021 gothic crown coin is the third release in the Great Engravers Series. Previous coins in the series sold out within minutes of their release.

There will be two Great Engravers Gothic Crown coins issued. One coin will feature the gothic portrait of Queen Victoria. The other will feature the quartered arms. Both designs are by William Wyon.

The Privy Council notice states a 1 kilo silver coin may be issued. Based on recent popularity, we think it's highly likely the Mint will produce this one kilogram silver coin. If this coin is released it will be struck to a proof finish from 999 fine silver. It will weigh 1,005g and have a diameter of 100mm. It will contain 32.151 troy ounces of silver. 

There are delays at the Mint on this size and we will update the expected delivery date accordingly once we receive more information.

Images coming soon.

Victoria Gothic Crown

The original Victoria gothic crown was issued in 1847 and 1853 (solely as a proof edition). Designed by William Wyon, the obverse featured a crowned bust of Queen Victoria on the obverse, with the quartered shields on the reverse. 

The Royal Mint have confirmed they will issue both designs, making this a 2-coin issue. 

Privy Council

We first heard about the coin after the Privy Council published information about it. The Privy Council is made up of senior politicians who advise the Queen on such matters as bank holidays, coinage and livery company statuses. The Royal Mint have to submit any new coin designs to The Privy Council for approval and that information is then announced on the Privy Council website. 

Obverse

The obverse will feature a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This will likely be the Jody Clark portrait which has featured on the obverse of most UK coins since 2015.

Reverse

According to the Privy Council notice, the reverse will possibly feature:

"a depiction of the crowned shields of England, Scotland and Ireland accompanied by the inscription “TUEATUR UNITA DEUS ANNO DOM” accompanied by the date of the year in Roman numerals."

William Wyon's quartered shield design appeared on the Victoria gothic crown. The crowned cruciform shields bear three lions passant for England, a rampant lion for Scotland, and a harp for Ireland. The angles feature the floral emblems; roses, a shamrock and a thistle. In the centre appears the Order of the Garter, bearing the inscription "HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE".

Another possible design for the coin, according to the Privy Council will be:

 "a portrait of Queen Victoria accompanied by the inscription “VICTORIA DEI GRATIA BRITANNIAR : REG : F : D ·”"

Also designed by William Wyon, the gothic portrait shows a crowned bust of Queen Victoria with a long hair braid. Her dress is richly embroidered with roses, shamrocks and thistles. The engraver's initials appear on the truncation below the shoulder. 

The obverse inscription appears in gothic style script, in upper and lower case. This in itself is quite unusual in that most coin inscriptions are in upper case (capitals) only.
