It was struck at the Royal Mint from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver.
Stunning St. George and the Dragon Design
Jody Clark's right-side portrait of reigning British monarch Queen Elizabeth II serves as the obverse design. On her head is her Royal Diamond Diadem. Rim inscriptions offer her name and an abbreviation of her title, "ELIZABETH II D G REG F D" (Latin for: Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith), and the coin's face value, "2 POUNDS."
On the reverse is a unique design of St. George slaying the dragon. His powerful horse rears back on its hind legs as the saint runs his sword through t he dragon, which is on the ground. A rim frame encircles the image. Inscriptions on that frame offer the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ FINE SILVER 999.9," and date, "2019."
