George V, Penny Brilliant Uncirculated, 1936
This King George V Penny was issued 83 years ago in 1936, but it has a most interesting
history. In 1936 we had three Kings, George V died, Edward VIII became King, although
he never had a Coronation and finally his brother became George VI. But the real secret is that
most of the coins with the portrait of King George V were actually struck while Edward VIII
was on the throne.
We bought a fantastic little hoard of these the largest bronze coin issued at the time. The
coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, which considering they are 83 years old is quite
fantastic. Add that into the history of 1936 and you have a heck of wonderful coin. The condition
is top quality and the history is amazing, but supplies are limited.
