Crowns were issued regularly during the reign of George V but in 1935 a special design was released to commemorate his 25th year on the throne, his Silver Jubilee.

With Britain in the grip of the First World War, George V gave up the historic German name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, adopting the Windsor name for himself and future royal generations. The proclamation of the new House of Windsor brought about a period of modernisation for the monarchy, reflecting the many social changes in Britain during the last century.
