Historic connection

Production of traditional sovereigns from Western Australian gold was the lifeblood of The Perth Mint in the years up to 1931. One hundred and six million pieces were struck, each bearing Benedetto Pistrucci’s classical St George and the Dragon design and a ‘P’ mintmark.

Design re-imagined

Inspired by the original reverse, the modern collectable presents St George’s victory over a malevolent dragon in a new light for contemporary collectors. A naked warrior on horseback is seen brandishing a sword above the defiant lizard. The image appears within a decorative circle of raised dots, together with the inscription ‘AUSTRALIA 2024’, and a ‘P125’ mintmark.
