Starting in 1937 the Royal Mint issued two types of Shillings each year, one with an English
reverse and one with a Scottish reverse. The Scottish one is always the more difficult to
get, as the mintages were always much lower than the English version.
We offer the last year that the Scottish Shilling was struck in silver, 1946, to you in an incredible grade. They make an excellent souvenir of when money was money and it was struck in
Silver. Offered here in uncirculated condition. Supplies are limited and this
is the last Scottish Shilling ever struck.
The third and last design of the Victorian coinage was the Old Head type issued from 1893-
1901. You have the bust of Queen Victoria wearing a widow’s headdress and the other side
has three shields in a circle. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and were made for every
year from 1893-1901.
Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will
try and give you. These coins were struck at the end of the longest reign of any British
Monarch, although our own Queen is quickly getting close to over taking her.
These Queens Shillings are available in different grades to fit more collector’s pockets.
The grade offered here us Fine: all details readable and less wear, a very presentable coin.
