The legends translate across both sides of these denominations as "George the Fifth by the grace of God, King of all the Britons, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India."

This coin would appear to be in the top five graded pieces at both PCGS and NGC, where it is equal highest grade at the latter as of August 2017.

The Wreath Crown design by Kruger Gray was much admired and the type design continued in succeeding years at the request of the Bank of England who liked to stock them at Christmas time to present to good clients, hence why the mintages were always quite small for the normal currency pieces. Bertram Mackennal (later knighted) was the Australian engraver responsible for the obverse design.
