Can anyone explain to me why some UK George 4th coins refer to the king as
"George IIII", and others use "George IV"?
I'm familiar with the anecdote about "some English king" who "corrected"
some unnamed clockmaker, resulting in Roman numerals for clockfaces counting
as: I, II, III, IIII, V, but I don't see how that translates to coinage.
A "IIII" example:
A "IV" example:
There are (of course) many other examples.
