Order your 'Into the Dragon's Lair' Quarter Sovereign for just £249!

The gold sovereign is one of the most recognisable gold coins in the world. Originally struck by the Tudor monarchs to showcase their power and wealth, this beautiful coin has, since 1817, been struck to the same 22-carat gold specification which hasn't changed in over two hundred years. 

The first modern sovereign struck in 1817 depicted Saint George and the Dragon sculpted by the Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. His neo-classical masterwork has proved to be enduringly popular and still appears on many sovereigns struck today. 

In 2019, Benedetto Pistrucci's great-great-great niece, Angela Pistrucci, unveiled a strikingly original new work as a tribute to her ancestor's original design. 'Into the Dragon's Lair' presents the epic battle between good and evil as it has never seen before. Saint George is shown without his horse and with his feet planted firmly on the ground, after having either dismounted or been thrown from his horse. He looks at the snarling dragon with its majestic wings unfurled as it rises off the ground before him. 

Angela’s design later made history by appearing on the first sovereign struck by the Italian Mint in Rome in 2019.  Benedetto Pistrucci was born in Rome, so it was fitting that the first sovereign to be struck there bore an image created by his descendant as a tribute to his genius.     

Your 2019 sovereign will be supplied in a clear protective capsule to protect it from fingerprints and accidental damage. The quality and the craftsmanship of each coin is further enhanced by being displayed in an elegant presentation case, and supplied with an informative Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its provenance. 

Rest assured that you have no further commitments and your purchase is protected by The London Mint Office 14 day “no quibble” guarantee. You have no further obligations.
