Why purchase this Silver Crown coin struck for King George III?

George III was the British ruler when the American colonies declared their independence in 1776, thus earning the nickname of the "Last King of America." This Silver Crown coin honoring the king, struck 1818-1820, features the "St. George slaying the dragon" image created by Benedetto Pistrucci in 1817. A slightly modified version of the design is still used on the British Gold Sovereign coin.

Dramatic Imagery Depicting St. George and the Dragon

The reverse illustrates the scene of St. George on horseback engaged in battle with a dragon, grasping a broken spear in his right hand. Inscribed upon a garter border is "HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE," which translates as "Evil unto him who thinks evil of it."

The obverse features the laureate portrait of King George III with the date below. Inscribed "GEORGIUS III D: G: BRITANNIARUM REX F: D:" (George the Third by the Grace of God King of the Britons Defender of the Faith).

Handsome Wood Display Box

This Silver Crown coin struck AD 1818-1820 by the Royal Mint during the reign of Great Britain's King George III is presented encapsulated, in ungraded condition. The highly collectible coin featuring Pistrucci's St. George and the Dragon design is nestled in an attractive hardwood display box with a colorful Certificate of Authenticity which includes a short narrative of the life and rule of George III.
