George III, Bull Head Shilling Fair (1816-1820)

In 1816 they passed the Currency Reform Act which made it possible to strike coins without having to have the Monarch sign a bill every year. This was because of King George III's sickness, which resulted in a great shortage of small coins. In 1816 and until 1820 this new design of the King’s Shilling circulated and the King hated the new designs. In fact he hated the Half Crown design so much that he made them change it. All of the George III Shillings are struck in Sterling Silver and they were only made from 1816 until 1820. We can offer this Bull Head Shilling of George III in Fair. The King may have hated the design, but we like it. The more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you.

This is the early design of King George V Silver Threepences with the crowned value on the reverse. They are struck in 500 fine Silver and the coins on offer are in Fine or better condition. The only date of this type that is Rarer is the 1926 with the crowned value. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the Crowned value ‘3’ on the other side. This is an important and Rare date and the first time we have had enough to offer them, but supplies are still short and if you want one, please get in quickly…
