Queensland Mint is proud to present the 2012 Dragons of Legend - St George and the Dragon Silver Proof Coin in Presentation Case

 

Saint George, the patron saint of England is a Christian martyr who is believed to have lived between 275-303 AD. The famous legend of St George tells the tale of a plague-bearing dragon. Set in the town of Selene, the townsfolk fed the dragon sheep to appease it, but when they ran out of sheep they drew lots to see whose children would be sacrificed instead. The day came when the King's own daughter was selected.The Princess, dressed as a bride was sent to her doom, but St George, who happened to be riding by, rescued the girls, slew the dragon, and had the town convert to Christianity. On the site where the dragon died, the King, in gratitude, is said to have built a church.
