This collection from The Royal Mint Originals range brings together three Victorian Sovereigns, originally struck by The Royal Mint the home of Queen Victorias coins more than a century ago. The 22 carat gold coins have been presented in this set that celebrates one of the United Kingdoms most influential monarchs. The three famous coinage portraits from Victorias reign feature on the obverses of the coins. Each one is paired with the classic St George and the dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci, which graced the reverse of Victorian Sovereigns minted after 1871.
All three Sovereigns in this set feature the famous St George and the dragon design by Benedetto Pistrucci. The renowned Italian engraver was commissioned by The Royal Mint to work on new designs for the recoinage of 1816. His depiction of St George slaying the dragon was inspired by the Greek style. New editions of The Sovereign featuring Pistruccis iconic design first appeared in 1817 and his stirring depiction is still struck on the 22 carat gold coin today.
