I picked this up today in celebration of Daniel Carr's upcoming break out of the 2018 KOTCT coins.

That looks like a nice one in pretty high grade.
However, something doesn't quite look right to me.
It seems a little too soft and fuzzy, like the circa 1960s Middle Eastern counterfeits.
But the good news on those is that they contain the full and proper gold content.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George_and_the_Dragon

Saint George and the Dragon
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The legend of Saint George and the Dragon describes the saint taming and slaying a dragon that demanded human sacrifices; the saint thereby rescues the princess chosen as the next offering. The narrative is set in Cappadocia in the earliest sources of the 11th and 12th centuries, but transferred to Libya in the 13th-century Golden Legend.[1]

The narrative has pre-Christian origins (Jason and Medea, Perseus and Andromeda, Typhon, etc.),[1] and is recorded in various saints' lives prior to its attribution to St George specifically. It was particularly attributed to Saint Theodore Tiro in the 9th and 10th centuries, and was first transferred to Saint George in the 11th century. The earliest narrative record of Saint George slaying a dragon is found in a Georgian text of the 11th century.

The legend and iconography spread rapidly through the Byzantine cultural sphere in the 12th century. It reached Western Christian tradition still in the 12th century, via the crusades. The knights of the First Crusade believed that St George with his fellow soldier-saints Demetrius, Maurice and Theodore had fought alongside them at Antioch and Jerusalem. The legend was popularised in western tradition in the 13th century based on its Latin versions in the Speculum Historiale and the Golden Legend. At first limited to the courtly setting of Chivalric romance, the legend was popularised in the 13th century and became a favourite literary and pictorial subject in the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance, and it has become integral part of the Christian traditions relating to Saint George both in Eastern and Western tradition.

All the dies are ready to go.
At this point I am waiting for a local machine shop to finish my ingot mold so that I can make the 50mm 3-troy-oz blanks and the cob blanks.
But I have all the 39mm round blanks, so I can start striking those this week.

Once again, I am way overdue in getting these done. There have been several challenges. Most notably procuring all the different required blanks, and also fabricating the 50mm 3-troy-oz blanks. My poured ingots wouldn't work because of the extra thickness of the 3-troy-oz blanks did not allow the rough ingots to be rolled down very much and there were too many surface imperfections. So I finally gave up trying that and bought some Sunshine Mining/Minting 5-oz and 10-oz bars (which cost more than "spot", unfortunately). But they worked. I could get one blank out of a rolled-out 5-oz bar, and two blanks from a 10-oz bar. The leftover silver will be utilized for other projects, of course. All the 50mm blanks and cob blanks, as well as all the Churchill Crowns, had to be sandblasted and wire-brushed. Every square millimeter of every one.

But things are finally underway. All the blanks have been fabricated and prepared. I've struck all the 50mm silver and all the cobs, so far. I was apprehensive concerning the 3-troy-oz 50mm medals (which is thicker that what I've done before). But unlike last year, they were fairly easy to strike. The extra thickness helped, as did thorough annealing. At 3-troy-oz I am at the limit of how thick I can strike in collar. There was just barely enough room to strike them. In hand these are quite a chunky medal !

Here is a picture of some, right off the press:



I the next few days I will strike the rest and then begin the special finishing on the cobs. After that, I'll need to do the inserts and packaging.

Here is a production update:

All medals are done (striking and final finishing).
This weekend I am working on the packaging (signed inserts and flips).
I plan to make the bulk shipment on Monday.

Here are some general notes from the production:

Every batch of planchets is different. This year the color-toned copper exhibits a very wide range of toning from medal to medal. For whatever reason (most likely subtle changes in the planchet chemistry and/or the temperature at which the copper sheet was formed) they were hard to control and are generally not as vibrant in color as previous years. I think the best thing to do in distribution is to just pick randomly so it becomes a "luck of the draw" situation in terms of the actual medal received by each buyer.

The 1-oz silver cobs have a new type of finish that I have not applied previously to KotCT medals. The "circulated" finish still shows some of the original luster, but they really do look like they have seen some long-ago circulation. They are nice in that you can hold one in your hand and not cause any detriment to the appearance or technical grade. Due to the copper that they were exposed to during the "circulation" process, they picked up a warm golden hue.

A small chip has broken away from the 39mm reverse die, in the narrow space between the right globe and rim (right next to Australia). The chip is small so the die could still be used next year, although I'm still having a little difficulty getting the rims to strike up fully. So we may consider engraving a new 39mm reverse die next year (with modified relief at the rim).

Normally, the color-toning process on silver results in a very splotchy and usually unattractive pattern. But due to the chemistry of the cob blanks, and the extreme radial expansion when struck, I found that the color toning on the two-troy-oz cobs was attractive. Also because of the large amount of metal flow, the 2-troy-oz cobs have a "starburst" luster pattern in the polished field areas. This, combined with the color toning, has produced a "striking" appearance. Most of the large cobs have a few small planchet cracks around the perimeter (not unusual for cobs in general and not surprising given the amount of radial expansion that occurred).

The Churchill Crowns worked pretty well as host coins. Some of the original design can still be seen around the perimeter after the over-strike.

One of the brilliant 39mm brass medals was found to have a blemish on it, so I converted that one to antiqued. I just now adjusted the mintage figures to reflect that.

While trying to tie up all of the loose ends before the medals arrive, I have to post 2 orders for sale here that were not paid for.  I have made several attempts to collect the funds from these members, and I received no response while trying to reach out to them over the past 2 weeks.  I have attached a list with the medals available to this post.  There will be a limit of 1 of each type per member who wants some of the medals on the list.  Payment by check will be due now, and the medals will be shipped with your current order to avoid extra shipping costs.  Please post what you would like on this thread, since they are first come first serve.

Examples:

I would like a 1 oz silver, a brass antique, and a 3 ounce silver  -   :) order ok since there are only 1 of each type


I want all 4 of the 3 ounce silvers  -  :( order not ok, only one of each type per member, let someone else get a shot at those other 3 large silver medals


Please post what you would like right here if you want some of these.... Thanks

I will take one of the extra 2 oz cobs.   Here is an updated list of the extra medals available.

This is getting exciting.  Santa could be delivering some Dan goodness before Christmas.

Here is a sneak peek of what is coming to a mailbox near you soon ;D....

To me, the 1oz cob looks like it could be a gold coin from the Roman empire.  Just amazing.

There is a cool luster like appearance on the 2 oz cob that spins around with the light. The strike is very cool and unique.  The colors are very vivid.

There were a few of the larger flips that cracked during shipping, but none of the medals were harmed.  They are randomly distributed among the orders.  If this is a problem for anyone let me know.  I will order some large flips and set your order aside until I can swap them out.  If not a problem, I will ship all the orders as is. There is a lot of work to do, but I will try to get them out in groups as I go.

Daniel went way above and beyond with the extra work and effort for these medals.  They came out way cooler than I could have imagined.

Beautiful! Thanks for posting photos. Can't wait to get my order.

And don't delay my shipment awaiting new flips -- I have extra flips (I'm guessing most folks do too). Or I'm hoping the large items will fit in the 5.49mm deep ring-style Y50 air-tite capsules.

Ship mine as-is, please!
