British West Africa, Edward VIII, 1/10th Penny Uncirculated 1936

Victoria, 1887 Silver Shilling, VF

In 1887, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee, and the Royal Mint was allowed to change her portrait for the first time since 1838. Unfortunately, Queen Victoria hated her new portrait on the Shilling... Coincraft has a nice group of the first year of issue, 1887. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Fine Condition. Considering they are now 130 years old, this is quite outstanding.
