Valiant Coin Background
Saint George is the patron saint of England. He originally appeared in stories told by the medieval Eastern Orthodox Church which were then brought back to Europe by the Crusaders in the 10th century. The story of George slaying the dragon was then further published in The Golden Legend written by 13th-century Archbishop of Genoa Jacobus de Voragine.
It was said that Saint George was a Roman Soldier from the third century AD, who was condemned to death for refusing to give up his Christian faith, by the Roman Emporer Diocletian. Because of his courage, he has become a symbolic and heroic figure to many across the world, and in 1348 Edward the III made him the patron saint of England. The Cross of Saint George also continues to take its place amongst national pride as the official national flag of England.
The first edition of this design was a 10oz version that came out in 2018 and was the first incuse bullion coin design produced by The Royal Mint. Years later, it continues to be a hugely successful series.
Valiant Coin Design
Artist Etienne Millner has captured the image of Saint George in the moment of triumph, as he is slaying the dragon, in a contemporary interpretation of the ancient legend.
The coin design features a detailed image of George on horseback, with his lance poised and ready to strike while the dragon writhes at his feet.
