George VI 1937 Proof Five Pounds

George VI (1936-52), gold Proof Five Pounds, 1937, bare head left, initials HP below neck for Humphrey Paget, GEORGIVS VI D:G: BR: OMN: REX F: D: IND: IMP: rev. St George and dragon right, date in exergue, B.P. to upper right of exergue, edge plain (L&S 1; WR 435; S.4074). A few light hairlines both sides, otherwise practically as struck, becoming rare in the UK market.

These plain edge Proof gold Five Pounds were produced to celebrate the Coronation of King George VI on the 12th May 1937 as part of gold Proof sets, with a mintage of 5,501 pieces, they were technically patterns as they did not have a milled edge like earlier gold Five Pounds of other reigns.

The Latin legend translates as "George the Sixth by the Grace of God King of all the Britons, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India."
