Why does this flawless First Day of Issue 2 oz. Silver Proof 2021 Alderney Gothic Crown belong in your collection?
The second release of the Commonwealth Mint's exciting Heritage Series is a tribute to the 1847 Gothic Crown of Queen Victoria. Imagery of the original Gothic Crown is credited to William Wyon, who was the Chief Engraver of The Royal Mint from 1828 until 1851, and is notably one of the most prolific designers in Mint history. This stunning commemorative release masterfully combines the original 1847 design with a gothic style rendition of a young Queen Elizabeth which was approved by the Palace exclusively for the 2021 dated coin.
Elegant Gothic Crown Imagery
Obverse: The obverse features a newly designed rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II created by acclaimed Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark (designer of the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the Queen). Inspired by the original Gothic Crown, the Queen's appearance is remarkably similar to that of her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria. The monarch is portrayed as a young woman wearing the St. Edward's Crown and a dress adorned with roses, thistles and shamrocks, the floral emblems of England, Scotland and Ireland. The inscriptions are also fashioned to resemble the original, stating "ELIZABETH DEI GRATIA BRITANNIAR.REG.F.D." (Elizabeth by the Grace of God, Queen of the British, Defender of the Faith), along with "5 POUNDS," "ALDERNEY C.I." and "2021."
Reverse: The reverse is a replica of Wyon's Gothic Crown image, which depicts a cross composed of crowned shields with the Order of the Garter symbol at the center. The shields are ornamented with the arms of England, Ireland and Scotland (three lions passant, a harp and lion rampant, respectively), with their floral emblems in between. The design is surrounded by the original Latin inscription "TUEATUR UNITA DEUS ANNO DOM MDCCCXLVII," meaning "May God Guard these United Kingdoms, Year of Our Lord 1847."
