This full sovereign makes for a lovely pendant or indeed an investment piece. It is dated for 1911, and the front depicts an image of St George slaying the dragon. The front face is enclosed in a later loose fitting "rope twist" surround. The suspension loop is also of the same design. This design is sturdy, and well constructed.
The rear of the coin displays an image of King George V. His reign lasted for 26 years, from 1910 to 1936. The outside pattern is exactly the same as the front face. The hallmark for the surround can be found on this side. It is very small and reasonably well hidden, therefore it does not effect the overall presentation of this piece. It can be found at the bottom loop on the reverse side below the letter P from the word :IMP:
The sovereign is held into this surround by clips at the back of this piece. There should be 3 retaining clips, however, it does appear that one has broken away. The sovereign is still secured tightly in it's mount and does not appear to be loose in any way.
