In the reign of King George IV, three different types of Shillings were issued. This is the third and last issue and it was struck from 1825-1829. You have the bare headed portrait of the King on one side and a crowned lion standing on a crown with a rose, thistle and shamrock
These Shillings were struck in Sterling Silver and we can offer them in two grades, Very Good and Fine. Here we are offering the Lion Shilling in Very Good. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. An attractive coin that was only issued for five years.
We have a nice little box full of Queen Victoria 1887 Jubilee Head Shillings. These are coins that we would
call About Uncirculated and we guess most coin dealers would call Uncirculated.
As they have come in, in collections and purchases over the counter, we have placed them in my little
box. They are almost nice enough to be called Uncirculated, but they are too nice to just sell as
Extremely Fine, if you know what we mean.
They are struck in Sterling Silver and this design was only used for two years, 1887 and 1888. The
coins are very nice and we think you will like the price as well, but remember it is only a little box and
supplies are limited…
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
