William Wyon is undoubtedly one of history’s greatest coin designers. Born in England in 1795, his father was an engraver of medals and coins, his uncle a die engraver, and his cousin Thomas was Chief Engraver of The Royal Mint from 1815 until his untimely death in 1817. So it was perhaps inevitable that young William would pursue a career in the coin industry too.
As a 22-year-old Assistant Engraver he created his neoclassical masterpiece: The Three Graces. While it never went into production, around 50 test ‘Pattern Pieces’ were produced which became collectors’ items as Wyon’s reputation grew. His ‘Young Head’ portrait of Queen Victoria graced the coins of her reign for nearly 50 years, while his ‘Una and The Lion’ remains a favorite of East India Company Bullion collectors to this day.
William Wyon’s Three Graces is early evidence of a remarkable talent, a Masterpiece now available to the contemporary collector as this delicate, strictly limited 1oz Gold Proof coin.
