I like the Kruger-Gray design best although I can see the second one being popular in the 30's because of the desiging style. Although I find Saint George and the horse look quite nice on the Metcalfe design, the dragon on it looks strange.

As with all Saint George and the Dragon depictions, I continue to like the depiction made by family of mine, that hangs in Newcastle Cathedral best. It could look good on a coin, I think. Maybe in the (near) future..
