William Wyon

If the many thousands of coin collectors in the United Kingdom were asked to nominate the three finest engravers ever to produce designs for the coinage of Britain it is likely that William Wyon would find a place in everyone’s list.
Many medallic portraits, both private and official, testify to his genius and his head of Queen Adelaide for the Coronation medals of 1831 was additionally remarkable for the unaccustomed speed with which it was finished.
