George V (1865–1936) was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, and Emperor of India, from 6 May 1910 until his death in 1936. He was the only Emperor of India to be present at his own Delhi Durbar. His reign saw the rise of socialism, communism, fascism, Irish republicanism, and the Indian independence movement, all of which radically changed the political landscape. In 1917, George became the first monarch of the House of Windsor, which he renamed from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha as a result of anti-German public sentiment.
In 1926 there are two varieties; the 'near 6' and the 'far 6'. This refers to the location of the '6' in '1926' relative to the maple leaf. 'Near 6' is the more common of the two and can be identified by the fact that the '6' nearly touches the maple leaf. The 'far 6' is much more scarce.
Additionally, there are two main varieties of this coin that occurred during the years 1922, 1929, 1932, 1934 and 1936. These varieties refer to the position of the 'S' in 'CENTS' relative to the rim. Because this difference is so hard to distinguish, many of the dates are worth the same, regardless of the position of the 'S'.
