1887 Shilling Extremely Fine_obv

Victoria, Shilling (Jubilee Head) 1887 Extremely Fine

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in extremely fine grade.

Picture of William III, Crown (1695-1696) Very Good-Fine

William III, Crown (1695-1696) Very Good-Fine

These Silver Crowns were issued in the reign of King William III 1695-1701. At that time Five Shillings or a Crown was the equivalent of five weeks' wages for a skilled craftsman. We hate to think about how little a coin dealer would have been paid if there were any at that time. This was the largest Silver coin issued for King William III. You have the laureate bust on one side and four sets of crowned Arms on the other with the date above. The coats of Arms are England, Scotland, Ireland, France, and the lion of the House of Orange. These early Silver crowns are getting extremely difficult to find. On the other hand, considering it is over 300 years old and worth at the time, five weeks' wages for a skilled craftsman.
