Elizabeth II, Scotland, Pair of Scottish Shillings BU, 1966

Most people think that the last pre-decimal coins struck for circulation were dated 1967, they would only be partly right. In fact most pre-decimal coins were last struck in 1967, that is except for the Shilling. The last Shilling struck for circulation was in 1966, they did not make any in 1967. They issued two different types of 1966 Shillings, the English reverse and the Scottish reverse. The coin on offer this issue is the Scottish 1966 Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. As the Shilling had a direct decimal equivalent they felt that they had enough of this denomination to fill all their needs at the time. We are offering you a pair (2 pieces) of the 1966 Scottish Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Why two pieces? So you can show the obverse and reverse at the same time

George VI, Scottish Shilling 1948 AU

The cupro-nickel coinage was first made in 1947 and this type was only made for two years 1947 and 1948. We have the King George VI 1948 Shillings issued with the Scottish reverse in About Uncirculated. Both are difficult to find, as this is an anniversary year, they were struck 70 years ago. A two year only type coin with the Scottish reverse and in high grade, how much more could you ask for?
