A collectable Silver Crown of King George the Third, dated 1820. The obverse shows a laureate head portrait of George II by Benedetto Pistrucci. His name appears below the truncation of the portrait’s neck. The reverse features the same artist’s rendition of Saint George, on horseback, in the act of slaying a dragon crushed by his steed’s hooves. This motif appears within a buckled garter with lettering that translates to the phrase ‘shame on him who thinks evil of it’. Pistrucci’s name again appears on the ground beneath the horse. The regnal year ‘LX’ appears to the edge. Spink 3787.
