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. 

Benedetto’s great-great-great niece Angela Pistrucci is an acclaimed international artist who studied her craft at the highly prestigious Italian Mint in Rome. Since 2017, she has released an annual design exclusively with The Dublin Mint Office to create brand new interpretations of the most famous fight scene in numismatic history!

Whether it’s a book, a television series or a film, it’s the finale that we’re all waiting in anticipation for. Everything has been building up to that moment and has us sitting on the edge of our seats in awe of what is about to happen. Well that’s exactly what the last five years have been leading up to, the final chapter in this remarkable solid 22-carat gold tale. The moment that sees the beast finally defeated and the part of the story that has inspired the design of the world’s most famous coin for over 200 years. Struck for the epic climax of this world-renowned legend, the 2021 The Dragon Conquered Half Sovereign finally shows the mighty dragon vanquished.
