Picture of Edward VII, Shilling, 1907

Edward VII, Shilling, 1907

Edward VII’s reign was very short, as he had to wait for his Mother, Queen Victoria, to pass before he could become King. Coins for this Monarch were only issued from 1902-1910. This issue we can offer the 1907 Shilling. The Shilling was of course given to individuals when they joined the Services. You were said to take the King’s Shilling. The 1907 Shilling is in Very Good – Fine condition and struck in Sterling Silver, which is the finest silver that a coin actually meant to be used were struck in.

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Fine

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Fine

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17-year-old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. We can offer the Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Florins of Queen Victoria issued 1887-1892 in two different grades. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. On one side you have the Jubilee Head bust of the Queen with a rather silly small-sized crown on her head. The other side has four coats of arms. All of these Jubilee Head Florins are struck in Sterling Silver and they are, despite what Victoria thought, rather attractive. We can offer them here in Fine, they are nice collectable examples.

Picture of Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

The first British decimal coin was the Florin or Two Shillings which today is the 10p. First issued in 1849 and changed to the Gothic design in 1851 these florins were struck in Sterling Silver. You have a crowned portrait of Queen Victoria facing left on the obverse and four crowned coats of arms on the reverse. The strangest thing is that a large part of the population was illiterate, yet instead of putting the date in what is known today as Arabic numerals, they put the date in Roman numerals. So that a large part of the populace could not even read the date that was on the coin. As 1851 became MDCCCLI. The coins on offer have seen considerable circulation, but don’t forget that even the most modern of the coins is today 132 years old. We have made sure that you can make out the date, even if only the last digits are clear.
