1911 was a memorable and eventful year in British and World history.
However, the standout event was the coronation of King George V on the 22nd of June 1911 at Westminster Abbey.
The British Empire was approaching its peak and so the event was attended by the royal representatives of all the great European empires, the last time that that such a large contingent of royalty would attend a British coronation. By the time of the next coronation in 1937, World War One had led to the abolition of most other European monarchies.
For collectors of Sovereigns, first year dated coronation editions are amongst the most collectable and desirable and we have managed to source a small number of the 1911 Sovereigns struck in London.
