Benedetto Pistrucci created the iconic St. George and Dragon image for the Royal Mint in 1817. The design has been used on crowns off and on to the present day. It's own of my favorite coin designs. This would make for an interesting collection and exhibit. Here are images of a few examples from 1817, 1951 and 2013.
