Here's a beauty I got just today. For me it's one of those coins you just can't stop looking at and trying to get a perfect photo to capture the brilliance. Definitely my favorite portrait design of any coin I've come across to date.

Is anyone other than me reading this thread thinking "I have to face THAT in PCI 2013?" :D

 

Banivechi, I love those half crowns - am I hallucinating, or are those two different busts? I'd swear the 1937 bust looks more like a repurposed Edward VIII than it does George VI.

The crowns on the king's head are definitely different!
