The Latin legends translate to on obverse "George II by the Grace of God" continuing on the reverse in abbreviated Latin which if in shown in full reads "Magnae Britanniae Franciae et Hiberniae Rex Fidei Defensor Brun et Lunebergen-sis Dux, Sacri Romani Imperii Archi-Thesaurius et Elector" and translates as "King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, Duke of Brunswick and Luneberg, High Treasurer and Elector of the Holy Roman Empire."

The roses and plumes on reverse indicates this coin is struck from silver derived from English and Welsh mines and sources.

We note the silver output for 1732 was a mere £2,620 which would have gone towards minting Crowns, Halfcrowns, Shillings, Sixpences and smaller silver.
