The Wreath Reverse Crowns of George V
The wreath reverse, featuring a large crown with a wreath of shamrock leaves with thistles and roses intertwined, appears on crowns of George V. It was introduced in 1927, and continued until George's death in 1936, except for 1935 when a different design was issued for the silver jubilee of his reign (25 years).
Crowns had been a currently circulating coin, and had been produced regularly until 1902, the first year of Edward VII's reign. No crowns intended for circulation were issued in George V's reign. All years of the wreath issue were of low mintage, the coins being produced mainly for collectors. Circulated specimens are therefore not commonly available, and sell for relatively high percentages of the price of mint condition specimens.

Bare head of George V facing left. The engraver's initials B.M. appear raised on the truncation of the neck.

The reverse features, as described above, a large crown with a wreath of shamrock leaves with thistles and roses intertwined. The engraver's initials K.G. appear near the letter W of crown. The reverse legend reads:

The edge is milled (reeded)
