This fascinating 1 kg silver coin is dedicated to the Legend of Saint George and the Dragon.
There are a lot of different legends about Saint George but the most famous one is of him slaying a dragon. Why dragon? The reason is that in the Middle Ages the dragon was often used to symbolize the devil.
This legend goes back to the 12th century. In the legend, it says that Saint George injured the dragon severely and thus saved the life of the king’s maiden daughter. The dragon became gentler and the king’s daughter led him into town where Saint George forced the king and all his folk to get christened. After that, George finally killed the dragon. Since that time, people called him “George the Dragon Slayer”.
