St. Helena, 2013 25 Pence (St. George Crown)
The tiny island of St. Helena, where Napoleon died, has honoured St. George slaying the dragon, with a beautiful Sterling Silver Proof crown. This was originally designed by Pistrucci for the new coinage of George III in 1818. It is still being used on our Gold Sovereigns today. They issued a crownsized 25 Pence in 2013 with H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and St. George slaying the dragon on the reverse. To make it even more impressive they have highlighted the Sterling Silver Proof St. George and the dragon crown, in gold. Each choice Proof coin comes in a protective capsule. But supplies are very limited on a Rare and most impressive coin. I think the price is also impressive. Today the mints would charge about £80-£85 for this coin, but NOT Coincraft. We bought them right, we sell them right.
