1995 Welsh Dragon £1 Silver Proof Boxed

Buy a 1995 Wales Welsh Dragon One Pound Silver Proof Coin

A series of One Pound coins representing each of the four Home Nations through their heraldic emblems was begun in 1994 by The Royal Mint. It started with the lion rampant of Scotland, before moving on to this dragon design representing Wales and available in this silver proof version. The red dragon is a symbol of all things Welsh. Since the 9th century, and possibly before, it has been used to represent Wales and is still today used on government buildings, football teams, and tourism boards. A red dragon appears in the 'Mabinogion', a collection of the earliest British prose stories, and goes on to be mentioned in 'Historia Brittonum' and myths and legends throughout history. It became the official royal heraldic badge of Wales under the reign of George III. The reverse design of this popular coin features a left facing dragon with wings open and leg raised, with the denomination, 'ONE POUND' inscribed below. The edge inscription reads 'PLEIDIOL WYF I'M GWLAD' which translates to 'true I am to my country.' On the obverse is Raphael Maklouf's third official portrait of The Queen. Prior to the current bimetallic One Pound coin, this denomination were round and of one colour. Standard coins have a diameter of 22.50 milimetres and a weight of 9.50 grams. This silver proof version is struck in .925 sterling silver and is one of 27,445 issued in this presentation. It comes in its original presentation from The Royal Mint with its certificate of authenticity.
