GEORGE V 1911, GOLD PROOF LONG SET
George V, 1911 Proof gold and silver twelve coin Long set, issued in the Coronation year, featuring the Gold Proof Five Pounds, Gold Proof Two Pounds, Gold Proof Sovereign and Gold Proof Half-Sovereign, Silver Proof Half-crown, Florin, Shilling, Sixpence and Maundy Set. Complete with the original Royal Mint octagonal dated case with gold block lettering, this in very good condition.
A Superb original matching set, which has been in the same London based family since being bought new at the time of the Coronation of George V in 1911.
*The Gold is matching although the Five Pounds photograph was taken after being graded, hence the slight difference in tone due to the reflectiveness of being encapsulated in the slab.
