Royal Mint Product Description:Britain's premier coin, the famed Sovereign Bearing the classic George and the dragon for 2013
Over 500 years ago the first Sovereign was struck, intended to rival the best gold coins of Europe. In 1817 it took pride of place in the recoinage of George III, reimagined by Benedetto Pistrucci. His classical George and the dragon was so highly regarded that it has appeared on the Sovereigns of every monarch since. The very first Sovereigns of Queen Elizabeth II's reign bore Pistrucci's St George, and 60 years after her coronation in 1953, the masterpiece returns.
