With only a few exceptions, most sovereigns struck since 1817 have depicted George, the patron Saint of England in his epic battle with the dragon.  This iconic design was created over 200 years ago by the renowned Italian sculptor and engraver Benedetto Pistrucci (1783-1855) who was described in his time as “an artist of the greatest celebrity”. 

It is fitting that the world’s first silver half-sovereign should also depict the triumph of good over evil as represented by Saint George and his scaly adversary.  The London Mint Office recently invited Benedetto’s great, great, great grand-niece, the acclaimed Canadian artist Angela Pistrucci, to reinterpret the famous battle in a new, contemporary style.  Inspired by her ancestor’s masterwork, Angela has expertly remastered the design for the twenty-first century.     

Timelessly elegant, and classically stylish, the silver half-sovereign represents a major milestone in the history of the sovereign.  Never before has the coin been so affordable to own, and while other silver half-sovereigns will undoubtedly follow, this will forever be the first.
