The ‘Rocking Horse’ Crown was issued for just one-year-only in 1935 to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of George V.
Significantly, this special Silver Jubilee Crown was the first time a commemorative crown was ever struck and started what is now one of the most popular numismatic collecting trends ever seen.
The controversial design
Despite its significance, this coin caused controversy when it was first issued, with many traditionalists disliking the art deco reinterpretation of the iconic St George and the Dragon design.
This unusual design is now one of the reasons why this coin is now so highly sought after by collectors. However, it was also never issued for general circulation and, because of its silver content, many have been melted down for their precious metal over the years.
And now being over 80 years old it is understandably extremely difficult to source.
Only limited stock available
Given its numismatic interest and history, this will forever be a sought after piece. With every passing year these coins become increasingly difficult to find, so act quickly to secure yours before it’s too late.
