Sell Silver Gothic Crowns



The prices on screen show a live indication of what the Gothic Crown coins are worth today. The coins limited mintages means that they carry a high premium over their intrinsic Silver value

The 1847 Gothic Crown was a one-year type of 8,000 pieces. A later edition was struck in 1853 to a proof standard with an unknown mintage although some sources suggest 460 made

 

The Silver proof Gothic crown minted in 1853 is hundreds of times rarer than the standard 1847 Gothic Crown. The 1847 issue has a mintage of 8,000 pieces which were mostly for sale to gentlemen, who used the Gothic Crown as a status symbol by showing the coin off. This is why most Gothic Crowns seen are heavily circulated and very much impaired

The 1853 proof finish issue was made in very small numbers with the exact mintage being unknown. The 1853 Gothic Crown was made for inclusion in the special velvet heart-shaped presentation cases which also contained other coins of the same year which were of a proof finish too

It is believed that the cases were made for the British Royal Family in celebration of an anniversary of the queen's marriage, but no records exist to confirm the reason behind the cases being issued. It is possible that the proof 1853 Gothic Crown was just Proofs of Record. Some of the coins would have been included in the heart-shaped cases, while other 1853 Gothic Crowns were sold to museums. Whatever the reason was, the proof Gothic Crowns of 1853 are extremely elusive
