'Honour, Courage and Kindness'

The Legend of Saint George Coin


The epic story of how the future patron saint of England courageously defended a Princess from a fire-breathing dragon terrorising her town is likely to have originated in Turkey during the eleventh century. 

As ‘The Golden Legend’ quickly became a bestseller, George the Dragon Slayer was depicted with the red cross of the Christian Martyr.  By championing the forces of evil with honour, courage and kindness, the noble Knight became arguably the greatest religious icon of the medieval world.
