King George V Gold Coins

King George V Gold Sovereigns



A common sight in any moderate sized Gold Sovereign collection is the George V Gold Sovereigns. This monarch's reign is interesting insofar that it offers collectors some key dates where Sovereigns were manufactured by the Royal Mint's South African branch

 
 

King George V reigned as King of the United Kingdom between 1910 until his death in 1936. King George V Sovereigns, therefore, are dated between 1911 and 1936 as George V's father King Edward VII was still featured on 1910 Full and Half Gold Sovereign coins. Despite a short reign, George V's portrait is minted on 26 years' worth of Gold Sovereigns

Given George V short reign, unlike the Victorian Sovereign Coins that have three different portraits over Queen Victoria's reign, all George V Gold Sovereigns all feature the same portrait design for the entire 1911 to 1936 period. Nevertheless, these Gold Sovereigns still represent a very popular design for UK and international collectors

George V Small Head and
Large Head Sovereigns



Many investors may not realise that there are two different George V portraits, one known as the 'large head' and one as the 'small head'. The difference is subtle but easy to identify when the coins are side-by-side as illustrated on screen. George V large head Sovereigns was struck from 1911 through to 1928 and is seen on the right of the two Sovereigns pictured

The 1929 design saw a change to the small head Sovereign which was repeated each year until the final George V sovereign was struck in 1932. Interestingly, South Africa was the only mint to produce Gold Sovereigns in 1932. Official records show the mintage was over 1 million in 1932 which shows this is not a rare year. George V only appeared on a double Sovereign in his coronation year of 1911
