Great Britain H3038-35157r.jpg

This specimen was lot 35157 in Heritage sale 3038 (Dallas, January 2015), where it sold for $822.50. The catalog description[1] noted, "George V Crown 1928 MS64 PCGS. From a scant mintage of just 9,034. Fully brilliant with minimal marks. Has all the looks of a Gem." This type was struck 1927-36 in very limited numbers and is expensive today; the commemorative crown of 1935 was minted in larger numbers than the entire type added together. This type was the last issued for circulation; all British crowns issued since have been commemoratives.

Recorded mintage: 9,034.

Specification: 28.27 g, .500 fine silver, .454 troy oz ASW, 38.5 mm diameter, designed by Bertram MacKennal and Percy Metcalfe.

Catalog reference: KM 836, S-4036, Dav-110.
