King George VI (1936 - 1952)
Queen Elizabeth II (1952 - )

 For each figure, the set includes a 1/2g gold coin featuring their effigy.

The origins of the House of Windsor

 During World War 1, anti-German sentiment was rife. For many, it remained an uncomfortable fact that Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany, emperor of the very country Britain was at war with, was not only the grandson of Queen Victoria, but also the first cousin of Britain's King, George V.  

In 1917, in an effort to distance his family from their ties to Germany, George V decreed that the Royal House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha would be rechristened as the more English-sounding House of Windsor, after the castle. A new dynasty was born. 

Continuing from King George V, the House of Windsor has now presided over Britain for a century.
