The Kruger Gray reverse design continued into the second George VI type, however, after the independence of India in late 1947, IND IMP needed to be omitted from the obverselegend ; this did not occur until 1949. 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. The series is relatively easy to complete, though only one or two mint rolls were sourced of each, making mint state examples scarce. Type set collectors would best aim for 1952 as the 1951 is often plagued by weaker strikes. Both years were struck at the Melbourne Mint.
