The story of St George and the dragon is a timeless tale of honour, courage and victory. In 2018, The Royal Mint reinvented this tale for modern times and the overseas investment market on the Valiant coin.

Artist Etienne Millner has captured the image of St George in the moment of triumph, as he is slaying the dragon, in a contemporary interpretation of the ancient legend. Reverse frosting highlights elements of Etienne Millner’s bold design, whilst Queen Elizabeth’s latest effigy is incused on the obverse.


The Valiant is also available to purchase as a ten-ounce 999.9 fine silver coin.

Key Points:


  • Struck in one ounce of 999.9 fine silver
  • The coin’s obverse is incused, whilst the reverse is frosted
  • Finished to The Royal Mint’s bullion standard
  • Exempt from UK Capital Gains Tax for UK residents
  • Packaged in a coin tube
