George and the dragon – the masterpiece is back

The Sovereign’s 500-year history continued in 2009 with the introduction of the Quarter-Sovereign – the newest member of the family but every bit as prized. In 2013, the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s coronation, the world-renowned George and the dragon returns from a rare absence. Created in 1817 by famed Royal Mint engraver, Benedetto Pistrucci, the classic design has featured on the gold coins of every British monarch since. 60 years after it appeared on the first Sovereigns of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, the classic is back.

The Sovereign

The introduction of the Quarter-Sovereign – struck in 22 carat gold like every member of the Sovereign family – brought this beautiful design, steeped in history, within the reach of every collector.  Every detail of the George and the dragon design can be appreciated in this delicate but impressive coin, just as perfect a representation of Pistrucci’s masterpiece as its larger cousins.

As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and the appearance of the first coins of her reign, the Sovereign family bears Pistrucci’s St George and the Dragon once more. Every single coin in the Sovereign range has been struck from dies made from the original master tools created by Pistrucci himself – what better way to secure a little of Pistrucci's mastery, in all its original glory, than with the 2013 Brilliant Uncirculated Half-Sovereign?
