George VI

1937 - 52

In 1937 the florin series was met with Kruger Gray's design which features a decorated coat of arms at the centre of the reverse, FLORIN up the top, and AUSTRALIA down below, with the year of issue just above that. After the coronation of King George VI the Florin obverse featured the uncrowned bust of King George VI facing to the left with the legend, GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX F : D : IND : IMP ('George VI, by the grace of god, Ruler and King of Britain, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India'), which was used up until 1948 and then changed after the independence of India.

After the independence of India, IND IMP was omitted from the obverse legend. The obverse still features an uncrowned bust of King George VI facing to the left, however, the legend changed to GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX FIDEI DEF ('George VI, by the grace of god, Ruler and King of Britain, Defender of the Faith') and was used up until the end of George VI's reign in 1952.
