When Great Britain struck its first Gold Sovereign in 1817, King George III was still wearing a powdered wig. Fast forward 200 years and no one, but no one would be caught dead wearing the fluffy, long out-of-date hairpiece! Styles and trends have changed dramatically since then, but one thing has remained constant: Benedetto Pistrucci's Saint George and the Dragon design that appeared on that first Gold Sovereign has been used by every subsequent British monarch to this day.

The first release in the Modern Masters Trilogy looks at the iconic Saint George and the Dragon design through the eyes of Jody Clark, one of the coin world's brightest rising stars. At the youthful age of 33, Clark is already famous for creating the fifth definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II during his time as an engraver at the Royal Mint. A renowned international artist, Clark was the winner of the 2014 flagship Britannia collection and the designer of the critically acclaimed Queen's Beast collection.

His rendition of Saint George and the Dragon shows the duel between man and beast. The dragon falls back, claws raised menacingly and teeth ready to strike. Saint George's horse rears back, as the knight leans forward to plunge his spear into the dragons' heart. A master of detail, Clark's design is so detailed that you can see individual strands from the horse's tail and each scale on the dragon's hide can be easily identified.

A stylized Celtic border surrounds the design. First release in the Modern Masters St George and the Dragon series.

Designed By renowned Great Britain designer Jody Clark. Struck in 5 ozs of 999 silver in proof finish. Coins with certificate of authenticity and presentation case.
