R  St George on horseback right, slaying dragon
1951
This was the last Crown to be struck bearing the traditional Pistrucci design of St George and the Dragon on the reverse. It was struck as a Proof and commemorates both the Centenary of the Great Exhibition of 1851 as well as the celebration of the 1951 Festival of Britain. It has an inscription on the edge that reads MDCCCLI CIVIUM INDUSTRIA FLORET CIVITAS MCMLI which translates to 1851 By the Industry of it's People the State Flourishes 1951. Frosted, Matt Proof, and Plain Edge Proofs exist which are much more valuable.
