Silver Jubilee

George V reigned from 1911-1936.  The final set of George V's reign was the Omnibus set issued by all the Crown Colonies to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of George V's reign.  Listed as "Type of Antigua," these stamps include the portrait of King George V framed by the decoration of the Order of Ss. Michael and George.  The "dragon-slayer" on the pendant immediately below the monarch's profile is St. George.  Forty-four Commonwealth countries or colonies used this format for 250 stamps.
