10 ounce silver coin from The Valiant minted in 2019 by The Royal Mint, the UK Mint.

As has become customary with this important company, the ability to create series of coins that represent their history and culture is an important part of their roadmap. In 2018 they created The Valiant, a coin that pays tribute to the myth of the hero St George, the soldier who sacrificed his own life to face the dragon. After the feat, the soldier became one of England's patron saints.

This series manages to bring together the values of mythological narration: victory, courage and honour. Since the year of its release, it has become one of the best-selling coins in The Royal Mint.

It is on the cross that the design of the soldier is shown. It has two distinct parts: the outer side, divided by a line around the coin, which has a flat background and describes the year the coin was struck and the fineness and quality of the metal used to make the coin; and the central side, which depicts the hero and the dragon.

One of the striking elements is that the background is not flat, but consists of small bas-relief points arranged in a regular pattern. The quality of the characters depicted is spectacular: the dragon is highlighted by the details of its skin and teeth, which reflect the ferocity of the monster and its attitude of attacking the knight; the knight, his clothing, his position in the attacking foreshortening and the small details of his horse's saddle.

This is a spectacular coin because of the geometric contrasts of the coin: the dragon appears horizontally, the knight diagonally, and the tails of the horse and the dragon are arranged in a circular pattern. Etienne Millner, the designer, has succeeded in capturing a very important story in the historical narrative of the United Kingdom.

The face features the classic face design of Jody Clark's Queen Elizabeth II: with a face like background of small dots, the queen stands out for the beauty achieved by mixing the wavy lines of her hair and the majesty of her crown. Her name and the face value of the coin (£10) appear above her.

The Valiant is minted in silver of 999.9 purity, its weight is 311,035 grams and its diameter is 89 millimetres.

The Valiant can be a perfect gift for lovers of Anglo-Saxon culture. It is a great option for both investors and collectors: get this coin at the best price and we will bring it home with the greatest comfort!
