George V, Rocking Horse Crown, 1935 Choice Unc
In 1935 the Royal Mint issued its first ever-commemorative Crown. It was for the 25th Anniversary, the Jubilee, of King George V. He had reigned from 1910 until 1935 and the Mint wanted to honour him and his Jubilee. On the reverse is a very stylised St. George slaying the dragon. Years ago, when Richard first saw this coin he said: ‘it looks like a rocking horse’. The numismatic trade picked that up and from that day until now, it is known as the Rocking Horse Crown. It was only issued for one year and was struck in .500 fine Silver. It is an important coin, as the King died the very next year. We have just purchased a nice little group of these coins in high grade and offer them to you now. The group was rather small, so if you want one, I suggest that you get in quickly. They are available in Uncirculated condition.
