Victoria, Old Head Shilling Very Good, 1893-1901
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 is Very Good: all details present and readable.
