1928 George V Wreath Crown

1928 George V Wreath Crown Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A very popular and collectable silver Crown of king George the Fifth dated 1928. The obverse features the bare head of the king facing left. The initials ‘BM’ appear on the truncation of George V’s neck for the artist: Bertram MacKennal. The reverse gives these pieces the moniker ‘Wreath’ or ‘Christmas’ Crowns. It shows a large royal crown surrounded by a wreath of shamrocks with roses and thistles. This is the work of George Kruger Gray. His initials ‘KG’ appear next to the ‘W’ in ‘CROWN’ in the legend. These Wreath Crowns were stuck in relatively low numbers over a short period of time (between 1927 and 1936) to give as presents. This explains their comparative rarity and popularity. In 1928 only 9,034 were struck making this a scarce piece. Spink 4036.
