UK commemorative Crown 1936, Saint George


so hello people how you going my name is
Glen and welcome to my channel and today well we have n UK crown now a crown is
off the value of five shillings in case you’re not familiar my parents’ II of
the United Kingdom and 20 shillings made up one pound so five shillings is one
quarter of a pound and this coin is actually depicting st. George Oh in
explain a dragon and st. George was reportedly supposed to be a Roman
officer of maybe he was Latin or Greek it could have been Aramaic or even
Coptic which is are the ancient language of the Egyptian people and it was
actually an officer who gathered the Roman Emperor Diocletian that was around
about around about 300 AD and he was actually sentenced to death for not
renouncing Christianity but as you can see here is actually in medieval probate
in 11th century military uniform and he has the shield of England so this would
be why this would be the red cross so the flag of st. George what a flag of
England and it’s actually there’s actually a sword here and here are the
reins and it looks like that there is a lance or part of the Lance that’s been
stabbed into the actual dragon so if you actually had a lance it looks like you
might have there but it’s a bit hard to tell so here was actually jousting with
the actual dragon go dragon yay and this coin is actually only 50%
silver but it is actually quite a nice so here I have a Australian crown only
two years so on the side these are your strengths mine’s just a little bit
smaller but it’s actually a higher quality silver but this coin on the side
it actually has lettering instead of reading so thickest it to Tommen I know
yeah Craig knee and it has 25 so two tens and
a 5 so this coin actually is dedicated to 25th year of the reign of George the
thief and this is actually the obvious of the coin because it has a symbol
representing the actual country and in this case it is a head of Georgia v and
has the Great Britain only Iraq’s but I defender in the Imperial and yeah so in
1936 he actually passed away and Joe Edward the seven fourteen or everybody I
took over for a few months and then I George six took a great 1937 because
well that’s why things go so quite a nice coin quite a large coin crown coins
in United Kingdom were not actually very popular and actually when they were
minted that actually minted very spelling usually you know like a
hundreds of thousands which really would not have actually satisfied the
circulation order coin is required for circulation and this would have been Oh
quite a lot of money in the 1930s I remember in nineteen forties walks on
the work actually got paid like five to seven pounds so this would have been
quite a chunk of change but being quite a large coin
not popular like this one here only as a miniature of about 700,000 and it is
actually one of the highest minted coins in the last high mintage was probably
dating back to Queen Victoria yes so if you’re interested in getting one of
these coins yeah eBay is the way to go because it’s quite
easy to actually get one and I find eBay reasonably reliable I generally don’t
have trouble with any of the sellers so if you like this video please give this
video a thumbs up and if you like this coin let me know down below and you feel
like collecting English coins please let me know as well because well when I
first saw it it kind of was oh grass very good coin I better get it
