Gold Alloy

For those who are interested in technical information, and wonder about the difference between the two different gold alloys used, we will give a brief explanation.

As you will know, pure gold is yellow. When it is alloyed with other metals, the colour of the resulting alloy will be different, and sometimes quite unpredictable from the layman's viewpoint. All the coins in this set are made of 22 carat gold, this means 22 parts out of 24 parts by weight. Expressed in parts per thousand, 22 carat is 916.6 parts per 1,000. The other 2 parts per 24 can be any other metal, but are usually copper, silver, or a mixture of the two. If all the balance is copper, the final alloy will have a very red colour, if all silver, then the resulting colour would be very yellow, almost green. By balancing the proportions finely, a range of colours can be produced between the two extremes.

Obverse

Ian Rank-Broadley created the fourth coin portrait of ELIZABETH II which appears on the obverse of this coin with the inscription:

ELIZABETH · II · DEI · GRA REGINA · FID · DEF

Reverse

The reverse includes Benedetto Pistrucci’s iconic depiction of St George slaying the dragon.
