The George V Penny series, lasting throughout George V's reign from 1911 to 1936, features a partitioned, circular reverse
design with the legend COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA around the outer ring and the year at the bottom, and ONE PENNY within the
inner ring. The obverse features the crowned bust of King George V facing to the left and
the legend, GEORGIVS V D.G. BRITT : OMN : REX F. D. IND : IMP ( George V, by the grace of
god, Ruler and King of Britain, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India ).Like most George V series, this a very popular
series to collect. In lower grade, all dates can be acquired at reasonable expense excluding the 1930 Penny.
Type set collectors would do well aiming for the 1911, 1933, 1934, 1935, and 1936 For good strikes, the 1911 is
an especially good choice as it is often found with full mint brilliance.This series was struck
at the London, Heaton, Bombay, Sydney and Melbourne mints. From 1911 to 1915 the
London mint struck the pennies; however, coins bearing the mintmark H under the lower scroll
on the reverse, which indicates they were struck at the Heaton
mint. From 1916 to 1918 the Calcutta mint struck pennies bearing the mintmark I under the lower scroll on the reverse. From 1920 to 1924
and in 1926 the Sydney mint struck pennies in conjunction with the Melbourne mintsmint
