In 1887, Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee and the Royal Mint was allowed to change her portrait; the first time since 1838. Queen Victoria hated her new portrait on the Shilling. Coincraft have a nice group of the first year of issue, 1887. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and are in Very Fine Condition. Considering they are now 130 years old, this is quite outstanding.
We have bought a nice group of the 1887 Queen Victoria Jubilee Head Sterling Silver
Shillings in Extremely Fine condition, a very high grade.
1887 is the first year of issue of this short lived type. In fact Queen Victoria did not like her
portrait on this coin, this design was only issued for two years 1887 and 1888.
All of the coins on offer are struck in 1887 in Sterling Silver. You have Queen Victoria on
one side with a very small crown on her head. This is what she didn’t like, because she felt
that it made her look silly. On the reverse you have a crowned set of arms within a Garter. The
coins are Extremely Fine.
