In 1817 the Italian sculptor Benedetto Pistrucci created his masterpiece ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ design for the UK Sovereign. An instant classic, the design has appeared on gold coins issued almost every year since then. Today, to honour the 200th Anniversary of her great-great-great great uncle Benedetto’s iconic design, Angela Pistrucci has crafted a modern interpretation exclusively for the Government of Gibraltar. An accomplished artist and sculptor in her own right, Angela has spent two years perfecting the design, and we believe it is one of the most stunning coins we have ever produced.
