In 1911, Sovereigns bearing the bust of George V began production. These would continue to be created until 1931 and were produced in mints all across Britain’s imperial empire. Like most Sovereign designs created beforehand, the bust of the king is bareheaded facing left to the letter "V" in the legend. The initials of the Mint’s Engraver, Benedetto Pistrucci are displayed on the reverse of the Sovereign, under his famed St. George and the Dragon design.
The George V Sovereign has two slightly different variations produced. The version produced after 1929 incorporates an inner circle and double beading around the coins. This new design variation culminated in a smaller bust of George V with a higher level of detail.
