William Wyon Chief Engraver from 1828 until his death in 1851 was probably at the very peak of his career when he produced the 1847 Gothic Crown. Considered to be one of the most beautiful coins ever produced, the design features a Gothic Portrait of Queen Victoria dressed in an ornate lace gothic style dress. A style that Victoria was very found of, as it enjoyed a revival in the early Victorian period. The Latin legends translates on obverse as "Victoria by the Grace of God, Queen of the Britain's, Defender of the Faith,".
The reverse is no less subdued featuring a crowned cruciform of shields, emblems in angles, garter star in the centre, with the date in roman numerals in lower right of the legend. Just 8000 were issued in 1847 with the edge inscription 'undecimo' which translates in English to 'Eleventh' this is to mark Victoria's 11th year of reign. The Latin legend translates to "May God guard these united, in the year of our Lord 1847."
