A gold coin (19 mm diameter with milled edge) featuring a bare head of King George V facing left; around, GEORGIVS V D. G. BRITT: OMN: REX F. D. IND: IMP:; below on the neck truncation in tiny letters the artist's initials B.M..
The reverse features St. George on horseback holding short sword, the horse rearing to right over a fallen dragon which has a broken lance in its chest; in exergue, the date, 1911 and the artist's initials B.P.
The mint mark (if any; coins struck at the Royal Mint in London do not have a mint mark) is in the ground above the middle of the date.
Although King George V acceded to the throne on May 6th 1910, on the death of his father Edward VII, all British coins dated 1910 continued to use Edward's portrait, and 1911 was the first year in which coins were issued with George's portrait. 1911 was also his coronation year.
