Why order this 2017 Gibraltar Gold Sovereign Proof with a remastered design?
This Gibraltar 2017 Gold Sovereign Proof - Remastered design marks the 200th anniversary of King George III's commissioning of Benedetto Pistrucci to create a sovereign design. This version of it was designed by one of Pistrucci's ancestors, Angela Benita Pistrucci, exclusively created for Gibraltar. This coin was struck from 22-karat gold at the London Mint Office and is part of a limited mintage of just 4,999 pieces.
Stunning St. George and the Dragon design by Angela Benita Pistrucci
On the coin's obverse is Jody Clark's portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. Clark depicts her wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem, which she wore at her coronation.
The reverse features Angela Benita Pistrucci's redesign of her ancestor's original. One of the changes that this new design offers is a correction of the proportion of the horse's head, which was too small on the original. Like the original, though, the design features St. George mounted on horseback slaying a dragon.

NGC also certified that the coin has sharp contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields by labeling it an Ultra Cameo.
