Why buy this Gibraltar 2017 Gold Quarter Sovereign Proof - An Iconic Design Remastered

Any student of numismatic history is sure to appreciate this Gold 2017 Gibraltar Quarter Sovereign Proof - An Iconic Design Remastered. 200 years ago, Benedetto Pistrucci designed the Saint George and the Dragon image that has dominated Sovereign coins for two centuries. This coin was designed by a relative, marking the first new sovereign design by a Pistrucci family member since then. Weighing 1.99 g, this coin was struck at the London Mint from .9167 fine gold and is part of a mintage of only 4,999 pieces.

Powerful Saint George and the Dragon design by Angela Pistrucci

The obverse image features Queen Elizabeth II in right-side profile wearing her crown. Rim inscriptions include her name and title, "ELIZABETH II DEI GRA REGINA," the issuing territory, "GIBRALTAR," and the date, "2017."

Angela Pistrucci, the great-great-great grandniece of Benedetto Pistrucci, stuck with the theme of her ancestor's coin though this reinterpretation, which took her two years to perfect. Despite this, it does offer some considerable differences. One of those differences is in the fineness of the detail, which is executed down to the fineness of the horse's muscles. St. George is also turned toward the holder on this coin, whereas he was shown in right-side profile on the previous one.
