Reigning from 1910 until 1936, George V was the first monarch of the House of Windsor and was king during some of the most tumultuous times in British history, including the First World War. This set features a 1911 Sovereign, reflecting George V’s coronation year, and a 1932 Sovereign minted in South Africa. The 1932 Sovereign features a distinguishing ‘SA’ mint mark denoting its origin and is among the last circulating Sovereigns struck at any of The Royal Mint’s branch mints. Struck in 22 carat gold, both coins feature the iconic St George and the dragon reverse design by Benedetto Pistrucci and Bertram Mackennal’s portrait of George V on the obverse.
