King George Frederick Ernest Albert, George the Fifth, was a Navy man who, as King, traveled to France and rallied his men on the front lines during WWI. He was a popular king that overcame tenuous political difficulties and enjoyed a joyous Silver Jubilee the year before his death.
On the obverse side of this George V penny, the seated Britannia reigns. She has a long history appearing on Roman coins in the first century as a goddess of protection and wisdom similar to the Roman goddess Minerva. Her image returned after the union of Scotland and England in the late 1700s, meant to symbolize unity.
