Young Head St. George & Dragon Reverse
To many people, St. George slaying the dragon epitomises the gold sovereign. It certainly is a very famous and well recognised design. Introduced to the British coinage in 1817, it was the work of the famous Italian engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. St. George was originally used as a reverse design on five pound pieces, two pounds, sovereigns and crowns of George III, was continued on the two pounds, sovereigns and crowns of George IV, but was replaced by a shield design from 1825 / 1826. Various shield designs continued during the reign of William IV, and the first coinage of Victoria.
From 1871, St. George reappeared on the gold sovereign, and from the 1887 jubilee issues, also on crowns and half sovereigns.
The date is on the reverse side on all St George reverse sovereigns of Victoria.
