My friend has this coin/token
It's George IV Dated 1820-1830 silver

On the front it has george IV with a crown wreath like roman wreath, georgius IIII D:G: , Britanniar Rex F:D:
And then on the other side of the coin this is what baffles us,
The coin is plain and has engrave
George IV

Just want to know what coin it is, bit of history about it and maybe if it's worth anything? It was passed down in the family and been sitting at the back of the wardrobe for 15 years.

as we have searched the Internet and cannot find The same coin ... We have found similar but not the same.

Thank you

Hello, Chloe, and welcome!
We prefer discussing coins/tokens/medals here on the forum so everyone could see and learn.

This definitely sounds like not a coin but a medal commemorating the reign of KG4 issued posthumously. Although since you're saying the reverse is engraved an actual coin could be used, with the reverse polished and altered. In either case it would be helpful to see the piece here. Is it possible to take a picture of it and post in this thread?

If those pictures are on your computer, then it is easy to do. Just click the REPLY TO TOPIC at the bottom of this thread. Then you will see UPLOAD IMAGE. Hit that and a new little window opens. Browse for your pictures on your computer and then hit upload to your post and the picture comes right here for all of us to see.

Also be sure to optimize them if they're taken with a digital camera in order to downsize them to under 100kb

Hello and welcome.

From your description, it sounds to me as if it were a normal British silver coin that has had one side ground off, and re-engraved with a memoriam to the king after he died. If you tell us how large it is, we could tell you which coin it was made from.
