1936 George V Silver Crown Wreath Christmas

1936 George V Silver Crown Wreath Christmas Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

from
£465.00
Popular and collectable, this silver Crown of king George the Fifth is dated 1936. 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: Sir Edgar 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. This coin, from the final year these pieces were struck, is one of 2,473: the third lowest issue in the series. Spink 4036.
