Description

George V (1910-36), Silver (0.500), Proof Wreath Crown, 1927, bare head left, BM on truncation for engraver Bertram Mackennal, toothed borders both sides, legend surrounds GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX. Rev, large crown with date split above inside emblematic wreath, with three roses and three thistles in alternate spacing, small K.G. to right of lowest rose to denote the engraver Kruger Gray, denomination CROWN at bottom, legend reads FID DEF IND IMP, edge milled (S.4036; ESC. 367; Bull 3631 L& 36).

With a mintage of 15,030 these Crowns were once all part of wider sets, a comprehensive example with a little weakness in the hair, minimal surface markings or detracting factors. Reverse, far more proof like in its appearance retaining its highly polished dies and mirrored fields. Extremely fine for type and issue
