Description

2021 marks the 200th anniversary of the definitive St George and the dragon design that has graced Britain’s gold sovereigns since the year 1821 in the reign of King George IV. This classical design by the talented Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci is known the world over as a masterpiece of coin artistry and has become synonymous with the gold sovereign itself. So much so that it is now the definitive design of the British gold sovereign series.

That’s why this anniversary is important. This 200 year legacy, is one of the British coin series most important and as part of this year’s anniversary commemorations, an exceptional gold coin has been minted – the one-eighth sovereign.  Featuring an exciting interpretation by talented artist Jody Clark, creator of the current coinage portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This means that for the first time in 200 years, both the monarch’s portrait and the design of St George are the work of the same designer!

The Queen’s portrait and the design of St George and the work of the same designer – for the first time in 200 years!

Benedetto Pistrucci’s classical rendition of St George slaying the dragon was first used on British gold sovereigns in 1817, after which it was revised and reworked until it became the masterful engraving that is so admired today. In 1821, the capricious Italian artist produced his definitive St George and the dragon design and, at the same time, a new portrait of King George IV.

Although St George and the dragon has graced gold sovereigns for 200 years, not since Pistrucci has the same designer created the artwork for both the monarch’s portrait and St George – until now!

In 2021, Jody Clark becomes the first artist in Her Majesty the Queen’s long reign to design both sides of a St George and the dragon gold sovereign coin, making this one-eighth sovereign of great interest to collectors.  Authorised by Alderney, and approved by both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Buckingham  Palace, it is a wonderful celebration.

At that point, we will issue to owners of this coin a new certificate stating the final mintage which may be lower, or possibly considerably lower, than 4,999.
