Description

King George VI ascended to the throne in December 1936 and had his coronation in May 1937. Originally named Albert Frederick Arthur George, he adopted the name George to signify a seamless transition from his father, George V, who passed away in January 1936.

The 22k gold coins minted during his rule were the sole ones issued: no additional Sovereigns or proof sets were released until his daughter, Elizabeth II, was crowned.
