SAINT GEORGE AND THE DRAGON Dragons of Legends 1$ Tuvalu 2012 Silver Coin

 

Theme Background:
The next coin series "LEGENDS OF DRAGONS"-St.George and the Dragon -
The traditional legends have offered a historicised narration of George's encounter with a dragon: see "St. George and the Dragon" below. The modern legend that follows below is synthesised from early and late hagiographical sources, omitting the more fantastical episodes, to narrate a purely human military career in closer harmony with modern expectations of reality. Chief among the legendary sources about the saint is the Golden Legend, which remains the most familiar version in English owing to William Caxton's 15th-century translation.
