Description

The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting new series featuring designs from historical Canadian bank notes. The reverse image features an engraved reproduction of the vignette of Saint George slaying the dragon from the original 1859 Bank of Western Canada banknote. On the centre left portion of the reverse field, an armoured Saint George, cape flowing dramatically behind him, sits astride his rearing horse. The spear he clutches in his raised right hand is held high above his feathered helmet as he prepares to slay the dragon. The horse is viewed from behind and to the right, its front right leg pawing forcefully at the dragon. On the right side of the image, the richly scaled dragon sits beneath Saint George, its sharp fangs and forked tongue bared as its sharply clawed forelimbs paw at the knight.
