Elizabeth II, Scotland, Pair of Scottish Shillings BU, 1966
Most people think that the last pre-decimal coins struck for circulation were dated
1967, they would only be partly right. In fact most pre-decimal coins were last
struck in 1967, that is except for the Shilling. The last Shilling struck for circulation
was in 1966, they did not make any in 1967.
They issued two different types of 1966 Shillings, the English reverse and the
Scottish reverse. The coin on offer this issue is the Scottish 1966 Shilling in Brilliant
Uncirculated condition. As the Shilling had a direct decimal equivalent they felt that
they had enough of this denomination to fill all their needs at the time.
We are offering you a pair (2 pieces) of the 1966 Scottish Shilling in Brilliant
Uncirculated condition. Why two pieces? So you can show the obverse and reverse at
the same time
