1915 George V Half-Sovereign

War gripped Britain in 1915. Away from our shores, the failed Gallipoli landings and the Battle of Loos led to heavy losses, German Zeppelin attacks on Great Yarmouth and King’s Lynn brought the war to the home front and the sinking of RMS Lusitania sent ripples of horror around the world. The tensions of war led George V, in the fifth year of his reign, to change the Royal Family name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha by Royal Proclamation, choosing instead Windsor, after the castle that still provides home and haven for the Royal Family. His handsome coinage portrait, featured on this original 1915 Half-Sovereign, was created by the Australian Bertram MacKennal. This is the perfect historic coin to mark the centenary of the First World War in 2015.
