George III, Bull Head Shilling VG

In 1816 there was the Currency Reform Act, which allowed coins to be struck even without the Monarch’s permission. This was put into place because of King George III’s illness and the shortage of small change. From 1816 on, new designs, new weights, new everything. These are the first of the new Sterling Silver Sixpences and Shillings issued from 1816-1820. You have the bull head of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side. The coin presented here is in VG.

S Africa Barry & Nephews £5 Swellendam 185- Slight Staining GEF/Unc

Save £10 on these £5 notes for issue by Barry & Nephews, a company which traded in South Africa in the 1850s. Payable in Cape Town and London they are beautifully printed in black on white with a vignette of an ox wagon, this means the company used to transport its goods into the interior. They are in GEF/Uncirculated but because of the way they were stored in the intervening years, there is some minor staining at the bottom. Usually £45, now only £35 each!

Picture of George III, Crown Fair

George III, Crown Fair

In 1816 the government made all of the older coins no longer legal tender. They then issued a whole series of new coins, which were, of course, legal tender. This is the first type of Crown or Five Shillings to be issued for King George III. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were issued only from 1818-1820. This coin is now proving very hard to get and it has been some time since we last had enough to offer them to our collectors. Dates of our choice, but we can offer them in Fair and Very Good condition. Here we present the coin in Fair condition. A very important coin as it was the first of the ‘new’ coinage to be struck.
