George Edward Kruger Gray

George Edward Kruger Gray was born George Edward Kruger in 1880 and adopted his wife’s name, Gray, following their marriage in 1918.

Based in London (in 1923 he was operating from 5 St Paul’s Studios, Colet Gardens, London W.14; telephone: Hammersmith 2749), he produced designs for many British and Commonwealth coins (especially the reverse sides) as well as medals. Should you see the letters “K” and “G” on an old British or Commonwealth coin, this is Kruger Gray’s signature.

Kruger Gray was a graduate of the Royal College of Art and is also remembered for his stained-glass window designs, good examples of which can be seen at the entrance to Manchester Central Library.

He died in 1943.
