A Classic Design, Remastered for 2018

For centuries, Benedetto Pistrucci’s Saint George and the Dragon design 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 image of Saint George! Struck in a full ounce of 99.9% silver, this legal-tender coin features 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 – Honor – Courage – Kindness.” It’s a beautiful piece, a fitting legacy, and an extremely limited mintage, with just 5,000 struck!

  • NEW SAINT GEORGE DESIGN BY PISTRUCCI DESCENDANT– The exciting design of Saint George was crafted by Angela Pistrucci, the great-great-great niece of Benedetto Pistrucci, who created the original Saint George and the Dragon design on the 1817 Gold Sovereign. Her design depicts Saint George triumphantly holding his shield while his horse rears on its hind legs. The coin’s obverse features Raphael Maklouf’s traditional portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • STRUCK IN HIGHLY-PURE SILVER – The Legend of Saint George One-Ounce Silver High-Relief Coins are struck in an ounce of highly-pure 99.9% silver.
  • LEGAL TENDER IN GIBRALTAR – These Legend of Saint George One-Ounce Silver High-Relief Coins are £5 (five pounds) legal tender in Gibraltar.
  • BEAUTIFUL PROOF-LIKE CONDITION – Your 2018 Gibraltar Legend of Saint George One-Ounce Silver High-Relief Coin comes in stunning Proof-Like condition, which means that even though this wasn't struck as a proof, this coin's brilliant and reflective finish has earned it a “Proof-Like” designation.
  • LOW LIMITED EDITION – The maximum worldwide edition limit for this coin has been set at just 5,000.
