A collectable gold full Sovereign of king George the Fifth, dated 1925 and struck in Pretoria, South Africa. The obverse features the bare head portrait of George V, facing left, by the engraver Sir Edgar Bertram Mackennal. His initials appear on the truncation of the king’s neck. The reverse shows Saint George, armed with a sword slaying a dragon under foot by the famous nineteenth-century engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. A tiny ‘SA’ appears on the ground below the horse, indicating that this piece was struck in Pretoria: established as a branch mint in 1923. This coin was only struck from 1923 to 1928 under George V for South Africa and hard to find in high grade such as this. Spink S4004, Marsh 289.
