The Latin legends translates as on the obverse "George, by the grace of God, King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith" and on the reverse "Duke of Brunswick and Luneberg, High Treasurer and Elector of the Holy Roman Empire."

Amazingly the calendar year output of gold coins for 1725 totalled only £58,360 which is the lowest of the reign by some margin, however the survival rate of coins dated 1725 is very good considering this low figure.
