Queen Victoria remains one of Britain’s most popular monarchs – a determined woman who, along with her beloved husband, Prince Albert, championed the arts, science, trade and industry. This five-coin set commemorates the 200th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s birth and the birth of an era.

The four silver coins in this set – the crown, half-crown, shilling and sixpence – all circulated at the time of Queen Victoria’s birth in 1819. Each bears the portrait of George III, Queen Victoria’s grandfather, by Benedetto Pistrucci and are fine examples of The Royal Mint’s work. The crown‘s reverse design features Benedetto Pistrucci's iconic portrait of St George and the dragon. The half-crown’s reverse design is of a crowned and quartered shield with a Gartered band and a smaller crowned shield in the centre, designed by Thomas Wyon Junior and modified by Pistrucci. It was issued between 1817 and 1820.

The reverse of the 1819 sixpence shows the United Kingdom’s Coat of Arms, with the royal crown above and a surrounding legend, designed by Thomas Wyon Junior. The reverse of the 1819 shilling also portrays the United Kingdom’s Coat of Arms, with the royal crown above and a surrounding legend in a garter, designed by Thomas Wyon Junior.

To celebrate this landmark royal anniversary, these historic coins have been paired with the modern 2019 ‘crown’. For this coin, experienced coinage artist John Bergdahl has created an interpretation of the popular ‘young head’ coinage portrait of Queen Victoria surrounded by innovations of the Victorian age.
