George III, Shilling (Bull Head) 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 Shillings issued from 1816-1820. You have the bull head of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side.

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 Septimius Severus Denarius Fine

Septimius Severus Denarius Fine

In A.D. 208 Septimius Severus set off for Britannia to conquer the island but he would never see Rome again! The people and the landscape of Caledonia (Scotland) proved too much and Septimius Severus, exhausted by his efforts, fell ill and died in York in early A.D. 211. His dying words to his sons were ‘stay friends, be generous to the soldiers and no one else matters’. In his reign he had increased a soldiers pay from 375 to 500 silver Denari a year, a good wage in those days! This meant he created over 1000 different denarius reverse types. We offer you these silver Denari with the head of Septimius Severus on the obverse and various reverses from the Roman Emperor who died in York. Offered here in Fine grading.
