2018 Gibraltar 2-oz Silver Legends of St. George 5-Piece Set High Reielf NGC PF70UC First Releases + Bonus 1-oz Proof
A Classic Design, Remastered for 2018
For centuries, Benedetto Pistrucci’s Saint George and the Dragon has graced the British Gold Sovereign, an internationally recognized symbol of British wealth and power. Recently, his descendent and former London Mint Chief Medalist Angela Pistrucci updated that design for the Sovereign’s 200th anniversary.
Now the modern Pistrucci is at it again, bringing us a new five-coin series telling the full story of Saint George versus the Dragon! Each two-ounce, 99.9% fine silver high-relief Piedfort proof depicts a different part of the famous knight’s tale – “The Town in Fear,” “The Selection,” “The Princess Awaits Her Fate,” “The Victor’s Embrace,” and “The Reward.” Each double-thick Piedfort proof also comes graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proofs will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
In addition, NGC has also certified that these proofs are First Releases (FR), a designation that means these coins were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of their release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later. Also, the population of coins labeled First Releases is only a fraction of the total mintage. The combination of the razor-sharp details and gleaming silver are perfectly matched on these impressive legal-tender £5 coins!
And as if you needed more incentive, you’ll also receive a bonus sixth coin: the 2018 Gibraltar Legend of Saint George One-Ounce Silver High-Relief Coin. It’s modern version of Saint George that was also designed by Angela Pistrucci. It shows the patron saint of England raising his shield as his horse rears up, ready to race into action. The legend reads “THE LEGEND OF ST GEORGE • HONOUR • COURAGE • KINDNESS.” It’s a beautiful piece, and it’s yours at no extra charge!
This series is a fitting tribute and continuation of the Pistrucci legend. And though only 1,500 sets were struck, you have a chance to secure yours now before they vanish forever!
