1937 Double Sovereign of King George VI
With a mere total of 5,001 Proof coin sets ever struck to mark the King George VI’s Coronation, and the only Gold coins issued during his reign, the 1937 George VI coinage has since become one of the rarest and most coveted Sovereign coins of the 20th Century.
Subsequently, demand for the 1937 Coronation Proof Set of King George VI remains exceptionally high, and with increasingly fewer appearing on the secondary market over time, it is becoming a progressively rarer find.
Offered is a Slabbed example of the Double Sovereign. Comprised of 22-carat gold and minted to a proof finish.
It’s reverse features the classic George & the Dragon design by renowned Italian Engraver Benedetto Pistrucci. A coin imbued with British History and retaining such scarcity, the 1937 Coronation Proofs of King George VI is an important member of any coin collection and an asset designed to be treasured with the utmost pride and care.
