St. George on horseback holding short sword in right hand, wearing a flowing cape, helmet and boots, streamer flowing from helmet; the horse rearing to right over fallen dragon which has a broken lance in its chest; the date, 1906 in the exergue; below exergue line at right the artist's initials B.P. (Benedetto Pistrucci).
Reverse B according to Marsh: designer's initials B.P. in exergue, longer and thinner exergue line, larger image of St. George (due to this, the rear of the cloak and the front foot of the dragon are nearer to the border). The dragon's wings have been redesigned, the folds in the cloak are rearranged, St. George carries the sword at a slightly lower angle.
Royal Mint London coins do not have a mint mark. The mint mark for branch mints (S for Sydney Mint, M for Melbourne Mint, P for Perth Mint) is in the ground under the horse's right hoof, above the middle of the date.
A Perth Mint half sovereign for 1906 is listed in McDonald only, as a uniface pattern in the collection of the Royal Mint.
