Obverse

The obverse of the coin depicts St. George riding a horse. In this well-known image, St. George is depicted with a dragon that he is said to have slain. In this, the dragon symbolizes paganism and St. George is the one who, by defeating the dragon, also ensures the conversion of pagans to Christianity.

Reverse

The reverse side depicts Queen Elizabeth II. Furthermore, the reverse of the coin features the Latin text "DEI GRA REGINA FID DEF," or "By the Grade of God, Queen."

The pink or red glow you see on this coin comes from the copper alloy used in combination with the 22 karat gold. The red color of copper gives the coin its unique look, which differs from pure gold coins. This 22 karat content has the advantage that the coins are sturdier and less likely to scratch or damage. This is because pure gold is a softer metal and is more susceptible to scratches and other damage.
