  • This coin commemorates the story of Saint George and the Dragon – an old, medieval tale of honour and courage. The story brings us back to the 11th century, when the first crusades took place. As the Golden Legend says, the slaving dragon is a symbol of Satan, while the rescued princess is a personification of Cappadoccia. Saint George beheaded the dragon with his sword – a metaphorical conversion of Cappadoccian people to Christianity. The Royal Mint released the coin called The Valiant, which captures the moment of St. George's triumpht on its reverse. The incused obverse portrays the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin weights 1 oz and is delivered in a plastic capsule.
