George V, Specimen Crown, 1935
In 1935 King George V celebrated his Silver Jubilee 1910-1935. The Royal Mint for the first time issued a commemorative Crown to honour the event. Despite being the height of The Depression, they issued them in Gold and Silver Proofs, which quickly sold out. So they issued more of them in Silver Specimen condition. They look Prooflike rather than Proof but are the best condition that most collectors can get. Remember this is the first commemorative crown from this country and even the Prooflike Crowns quickly sold out. We bought a small group from a dealer who has been hoarding them, but supplies are very limited.
