George VI, English Shilling Gem Uncirculated, 1949
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 choice 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 them Choice Uncirculated and Gem Uncirculated, the worst coin is far superior
to what you see on the market and the finest coins are just about as good as you will ever see.
The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of
these are much nicer than that.
A chance to buy a Choice George VI 1949 English cupronickel Shilling at a price that will
