Christine writes: I have a coin from 1914 that I have deducted is from India when it was a British colony but I can’t find any information on it at all. Do you know of this coin? Further description- on one side it has a big “3” with a crown over it, the date, and ivy around the edges. On the other side it has the head of a King George and around the edge it says GEORGIVS V D.G.BRITT:OMN:REX F.D.IND:IMP: Hope you can help!
The coin you have is a Great Britain 3 pence, portrait of King George V/crowned 3. You are confusing the country with the legend that states that the king was ruler of The Britons and India. (GEORGE THE FIFTH BY THE GRACE OF G-D KING OF ALL THE BRITONS AND INDIA AND DEFENDER OF THE FAITH)
