Deco dragon

We moved house recently and all sorts of forgotten, random objects keep turning up in unexpected places. For example, this 1935 commemorative coin from God knows where, featuring a stylised St George slaying a very streamlined, wingless dragon. You hear a lot about Victorian gothic, but not so much about deco gothic* which, it seems, was also a thing once.

* Not to be confused with express deco gothic.
