George VI 1937
King of the United Kingdom and the last Emperor of India, George VI ruled from 1936 - 1952. Due to the outbreak of the Second World War very few coins were produced during George's reign, but George VI Sovereigns were minted in 1937.
George VI Sovereign
Finding a George VI Sovereign can prove a difficult task. The UK economy was still recovering following the First World War, and events in Germany looked increasingly concerning. The abdication of his older brother - Edward VIII - meant that George VI was a surprise King. Crowned in 1936 a limited number (5,500) Proof Sovereigns were produced in 1937 as part of a set, while the outbreak of World War 2, and the move away from the Gold Standard, saw no other years of Sovereigns produced for his reign.
These George VI Sovereigns have become very collectable selling for far beyond their monetary value.
