The Sydney mint reverted to the Imperial St George and Shield
designs in 1871 with the Shield design intended for export to other colonies. The first St George design depicts Pistrucci's
St George slaying the dragon with the designer's initials B.P. in large characters on the right below the
exergue. The design would only last for half a year with the Sydney
mint switching to a small B.P. design later in the year, making the large BP scarce.
