St George and dragon right, date in exergue, B.P. to upper right of exergue, edge plain (WR 442; S.4077). Just a few very light hairlines, otherwise as struck.

These plain edge Proof gold Half-Sovereigns 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 other gold Sovereigns.
