Last George V sovereign
Perfect for sovereign collectors, this 1925-dated gold coin has a fascinating history. While the coins display the date of the last sovereign struck at The Royal Mint in London during King George V's reign, they were actually struck from 1949 to 1951 under King George VI. Distinguished from original 1925 sovereigns by noticeably higher rims, the 1949-51 restrikes are extremely rare with fewer than 900,000 issued.
The Royal Mint struck its last George V sovereign in 1925, however demand for sovereigns on the bullion market increased dramatically after World War II. Many counterfeits were produced as the sovereign became respected as ‘the world’s most famous gold coin’. It is believed that, due to time constraints regarding approvals to issue George VI sovereigns and the creation of new dies, the Mint used dies employed for the previous year of sovereign production – 1925.
Historic St George design
Available in Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated condition, the coin’s reverse portrays Benedetto Pistrucci's classic design with the wyvern-like dragon being trampled by St George’s warhorse. The coin features a large uncrowned bust of King George V facing left on its obverse.
Each coin is housed in an elegant black timber case and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
