IND: IMP: rev. St George and dragon right, date in exergue, B.P. to upper right of exergue, edge milled (WR 416; S.3996). With some light hairlines, has been graded and slabbed by PCGS as PR64. Estimated Value $2,500

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "George the Fifth by the Grace of God, King of all the Britains, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India." By the time of the Coronation of George V the brilliant proof finish was back in fashion and this coin features in the long and short gold proof sets of his coinage with the portrait by the Australian sculptor Bertram MacKennal. We note a total of 410 examples have been recorded on the PCGS and NGC census' as of Summer 2020 as so many of these coins have found their way overseas.
