Picture of George V, Crown EF 1935

George V, Crown EF 1935

It sounds strange nowadays with the Royal Mint issuing commemorative coins almost daily, but the first commemorative coin for this country was the 1935 Crown. It was issued to honour the Silver Jubilee of King George V 1910-1935. There were no other commemorative coins for this country before the 1935 Crown, although we still don’t know about the Gothic Crown. It has a rather unusual rendition of St. George slaying the dragon and we were the first people to say it looked like a rocking horse. From then it rapidly became known as ‘The Rocking Horse Crown’. You must remember that this country was in depression as was the rest of the world, so a Crown or Five Shilling piece was a lot of money at the time. We have some nice Extremely Fine examples of this first-ever British commemorative Crown to offer you. Extremely Fine is a very high grade and considering the coin is now 83 years old, we think it is a winner.
