These plain edge Proof gold Double 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.

Looking at the population reports of PCGS and NGC we can see that between them they have certified 399 examples of the George VI gold Proof Two Pounds as end of February 2017. The Proof 66 Cameo grading means this coin falls into the top 50 graded pieces across both grading services. This is whilst noting each service has only graded one piece at the higher grade of 67 within this top 50 total with nothing higher.

The legends translate as "George the Sixth by the grace of God, King of all the Britains, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India."
