The fourthof Soho Mint’s foreign engravers

Conrad Heinrich Küchler 1740-1810

Küchler was born in Flanders around 1740.[1][2] He first came to England in March 1793, where he was employed as an engraver at the Soho Mint, owned by the notable manufacturer Matthew Boulton.[3] He was Boulton's sole artist for designing and die-cutting, and produced the designs for various coins, medals and tokens, including the copper "cartwheel" pennies and twopences, and medals depicting the Battle of Trafalgar, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.[2][4] He designed at least three of the obverse portraits for the long reign of George III. He later left the Mint, but continued to be employed by Boulton's firm in London until his death.[2]


Küchler died in Handsworth in 1810.[1]
