George IV, Crown Fine

During the short reign of King George IV this Sterling Silver Crown or Five Shilling piece was only struck for two years 1821 and 1822. You have the portrait of King George IV on the obverse with St. George and the dragon on the reverse. There was another design crown issued in 1826 but that is very rare. This is a rather handsome and, we believe, underappreciated coin and one that over the past few years has been harder and harder to get. In fact, the few coins that we can offer you have taken us two years to put together. The coins on offer are in Fine condition. They are struck in Sterling Silver and were only struck for two years.

George IV, Crown Very Good

During the short reign of King George IV only three crowns were issued 1821, 1822 and 1826. As the 1826 can cost thousands, we will leave that out, for this issue… They are Five Shillings or a real Crown, struck in Sterling Silver for only those two years. You have the King with laurel wreath on one side and St. George and the dragon on the other side. I think this is one of the most underappreciated crowns of the modern series. After all they only struck them for two years and they are within two years of being 200 years old. Real antiques and rather beautiful coins especially in the higher grades, which by the way, can be very expensive. The 1822 in Uncirculated can cost you more than £2,000. We offer them by type, but if you order twos, I promise you one of each date. We have them in two different grades, Fine, Very Good.

George IV, Farthing 2nd Type About VF

King George IV had a very short reign 1820-1830. The smallest denomination made for everyday usage was the Farthing. Struck in copper it had the King’s head in a laurel wreath with Britannia seated on the reverse. Not everyone knows that during this short reign there were two types of Farthing struck for circulation. The first type, struck between 1821-1826, has the king’s name written GEORGIUS IIII, the portrait has drapery on the shoulders and the date is below Britannia on the reverse. The second type of Farthing, struck between 1826-1830, has the king’s name spelt GEORGIUS IV, the portrait has no drapery and the date is on the obverse under the king’s portrait. We offer these coins in About Very Fine condition, they are not an easy coin to find in this grade. You can buy just one type if you are missing it in your collection or both and save some money.

George VI_Bare_Head_obv

George IV, Farthings (Pair) in Very Fine

In the short reign of King George IV 1820-30, there were two different busts used on his Farthings. George IV was also known as the sailor King. You have his early coinage and his later coinage, two types to collect. Because the Farthing was the lowest denomination that was regularly made and used, they tend to come in well-worn condition. Mark has put together a limited number of pairs of both types of George IV Farthings, Bare Head and Laureate Head, but in Very Fine condition. We didn’t think he could do it, but he did. These are very difficult to find in Very Fine condition and they are over 180 years old.

George IV, Bare Head Shilling Fine_obv

George IV, Shilling (Bare Head) Fine

King George IV was made Prince Regent in 1811 during the Napoleonic Wars, but he only ruled from 1820-1830, so his coinage was rather short-lived. After his coronation in 1820, and in times of peace, it was more important for the king to build and that's exactly what George IV did! He was notoriously known for being an outstanding builder and collector, some would call him extravagant - but the King's fondness for pageantry helped to develop the ceremonial side of the monarchy. And although he wasn't a coin collector (we all have our flaws...) he certainly held an impressive amount of works of art across different fields including: paintings, sculptures, decorative arts, prints in vast numbers, books, and even jewellery. His charm and culture earned him the title of 'the first gentleman of Europe'. The coin on offer is his sterling silver shilling issued between 1825-1829 all in Fine. You have the King’s head facing left and the reverse has a lion standing on a crown. They were only issued in 1825, 1826, 1827, and 1829. So all coins are now over 180 years old. When you joined the army or navy you were said to take the King’s shilling but in times of peace, it's important to be a gentleman. So take one or more of these shillings of George IV, a king that helped shape our traditions, and let them serve you as a reminder of the importance of being a gentleman!

George IV_Crown_Fair_Obv

George IV, Silver Crown Fair

This Sterling Silver Crown of King George IV is, in our opinion, greatly underappreciated. It was struck for only two years 1821 and 1822. That makes it about 200 years old. These Sterling Silver Crowns of King George IV are not only highly collectable, but very affordable as well. You have the bust of the King facing left wearing a laurel wreath with St. George slaying the dragon on the other side. An Uncirculated example will cost you about £2,000, but these circulated coins will cost you much less. We offer them in Fair condition which means there is much wear but all details including the date shows.
