Circular silver medal on ornate scroll and laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with the head and shoulders portraits of King George VI and, beyond, Queen Elizabeth, both facing left, crowned and in coronation robes, signed ‘PM’; the reverse with the crowned cipher of King George VI (GRI = George, King and Emperor) centrally above the inscription ‘CROWNED 12 MAY 1937’, circumscribed ‘GEORGE VI QUEEN ELIZABETH’; slight age-oxidisation marks; on recent correct court mounting. The medal was issued to mark the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on 12 May 1937 and was the personal gift of the sovereign to members and servants of the Royal Household and to members of the armed forces, governments and elected holders of office throughout the Empire and Dominions. In all, 90,279 were manufactured; all those issued were unnamed. A good example.
