Victoria, Jubilee Head Shilling Extremely Fine, 1887

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.
