George VI, Shilling (English) 1945 AU

World War II was over and our coinage was still struck in silver, something that would carry on for just one more year. Starting with his Coronation in 1937, the Shilling had been struck with both an English and a Scottish reverse. So this 1945 English Shilling is the penultimate English Shilling to be issued in silver. Here we offer the 1945 Shilling in Uncirculated condition. Remember these are still struck in 500 fine Silver.

Picture of Edward VII, Third Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1902

Edward VII, Third Farthing Brilliant Uncirculated, 1902

To us, one of the most interesting and difficult coins of King Edward VII has always been the Third Farthing. It is the smallest coin issued by Edward VII and it was made for only one year 1902. A Farthing was 960 to the pound and these are each one third of that Farthing. Although legal tender and used in this country, they were mainly made for use in Malta and Ceylon. The mintage is just 288,000 and they are now 116 years old. This group came in from a dealer who bought them from someone who put them away in 1902. The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and remember they are a one year type coin and very low mintage.

Edward VII, Shilling 1907 VG-Fine

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 1907 Shilling. The Shilling was of course given to individuals when they joined the Services. You were said to take the King’s Shilling. This 1907 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.
