The story of St. George and the dragon is a classic one in Western European folklore. Remove St. George from the equation and this tale has been told countless times in nations across the European continent. It involves all of the trappings of a typical fairy tale. A beautiful princess is endangered by a deadly dragon and only one man is brave enough to slay the beast and save the day.
On the reverse side of 2019 1 oz British Silver Valiant Coins is a design from Etienne Millner. This design captures St. George on horseback as his faithful steed carries him to meet his destiny. The horse tramples over the dragon as St. George thrusts the spear into the beast to vanquish it and safe the beautiful damsel.
The obverse of 2019 British Silver Valiant Coins includes the latest effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majestys portrait is featured here in a design from Jody Clark. This fifth-generation design depicts the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Royal Diadem crown and she is shown at the age of 89.
The Royal Mint of England is one of Europes longest-operating mints. The London Mint issued coins as early as the 9th century when the city was under Danish control, but it became the foundation of the Royal Mint in 886 when Saxons reclaimed London and began issuing coins during the reign of King Alfred the Great.
