George VI, English Shilling, 1945 Uncirculated

World War II was over and our coinage was still struck in silver, something that would carry on for just one more year. Starting with his Coronation in 1937, the Shilling had been struck with both an English and a Scottish reverse. So this 1945 English Shilling is the penultimate English Shilling to be issued in silver. Here we offer the 1945 Shilling in About Uncirculated condition. Remember these are still struck in 500 fine Silver.
