1936 ‘Wreath’ or ‘Christmas’ Crown of George V. Obverse: bare, bearded head of the king, facing left, by Sir Edgar Bertram MacKennal. The artists initials appear on the truncation of George’s neck. The legend around reads: ‘GEORGIVS V DEI GRA: BRITT: OMN: REX’. Reverse shows crown in centre with date - 1936 - either side of orb. This is surrounded by a wreath of clover, thistles and roses: national flowers for the three kingdoms. ‘CROWN’ at the bottom with ‘FID DEF IND IMP around, divided by flowers. The initials ‘KG’ appear to the right of the lower rose for George Kruger Gray. 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. 2,473 were issued in 1936, the third lowest mintage year. This example weighs 28.28 grams and has a diameter of 38.6 millimetres. Grade: EF - Light tone with a couple of minor nicks and faint scratches, mainly to the obverse otherwise Extremely Fine. Spink 4036.
