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. Here we offer the 1908 Shilling. The Shilling was of course given to individuals when they joined the Services. You were said to take the King’s Shilling. This 1908 Shilling is in Very Good-Fine condition, and it was struck in Sterling Silver, which is the finest silver that a coin actually meant to be used was struck in.
