William IV, Shilling Very Good

King William IV 1830-1837, was known as the Sailor King. When you joined the services you were said ‘to take the King’s shilling’ and that is what we are offering you. These are Sterling Silver Shillings that were only struck for circulation between 1834 and 1837. The bare head of the King on one side is a crowned value within a wreath, a simple but elegant design. Dates of our choice but all of them are over 185 years old and a real antique.

Edward VII, Shilling 1902 VG Fine

In 1902 the first coinage of King Edward VII was finally issued. He became King in 1901. Now, the rules say that no coins are to be released until after the Monarch’s Coronation, which in this case, almost didn’t happen. Edward had appendicitis and in those days people died from it. But an early operation saved him and the only consequence was that his Coronation was postponed. This Shilling is a most important denomination because when you joined the Armed Forces you were said to ‘Take the King’s Shilling’. It might have been one of these that were taken, who knows... Each Shilling is dated 1902, the Coronation Year, it is struck in Sterling Silver and will grade Very Good – Fine condition. The Edward VII series is a very short one, 1902-1910, yet there are many difficult coins in this series.
