1949 George VI Shilling Gem Unc
It was in the reign of King George VI that all silver was removed from our coinage and
replaced with what we use today, cupronickel. But what many collectors don’t realise is that
the cupronickel coins of George VI in gem condition are much rarer to get than choice silver
coins of George VI.
We purchased a group of the 1949 English Shillings, put away in 1949 and are they super! We have classed these as Gem Uncirculated, these are probably the best condition possible for this particular coin.
The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of
these are much nicer than that.
