The patron saint of multiple cities including England, Saint George was a devout Roman soldier who was widely respected for his faith in religion and heroic traits of bravery. Saint George became a martyr when he refused to renounce his faith and prosecute fellow Christians during his time of service in the Roman army. The legend of Saint George slaying the dragon has been told in multiple variations, but they all begin with the same plot of how Saint George happened to pass through a town that was terrorized by a vicious dragon. Upon knowing that a princess was soon to be sacrificed to the dragon to appease it, Saint George entered the town without hesitation and killed the dragon bravely.

This piece references closely from William Wyon’s interpretation of this heroic act, which was commissioned by Prince Albert for a medal in 1844. Saint George rides a rearing horse, as he lifts his hands and spears the dragon with strength and valor. The chiseled lines on his body are defined and stand out with incredible detail, contrasting against the textures of the scales on the dragon’s body. The obverse features the legal tender, the Coat of Arms du Tchad.

A new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Plus” was applied to give this piece an impressive size and weight. At 80mm in diameter, it is double the size of a regular 2 oz collectible, made possible by combining 11.5 oz of copper embodied within two layers of 999 pure silver totaling 2 oz, to deliver with an antique finish.
