Edward VII, Shilling 1902 VG Fine

In 1902 the first coinage of King Edward VII was finally issued. He became King in 1901. Now, the rules say that no coins are to be released until after the Monarch’s Coronation, which in this case, almost didn’t happen. Edward had appendicitis and in those days people died from it. But an early operation saved him and the only consequence was that his Coronation was postponed. This Shilling is a most important denomination because when you joined the Armed Forces you were said to ‘Take the King’s Shilling’. It might have been one of these that were taken, who knows... Each Shilling is dated 1902, the Coronation Year, it is struck in Sterling Silver and will grade Very Good – Fine condition. The Edward VII series is a very short one, 1902-1910, yet there are many difficult coins in this series.

Elizabeth II, Scotland, Pair of Scottish Shillings 1966 BU

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

We have examples of this coin in different grades. Dates will be of our choice but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. Remember this is the FIRST of the new coinage…

1787 Shilling_obv

George III, Shilling 1787 Extremely Fine

Most will know about the illness of King George III, but most don’t know that because of that illness the King would not allow a law to make smaller coins to be passed. This of course caused a lot of problems with day to day commerce; there just were not enough small coins around to make change. There are only two silver coins struck before the Currency Reform Act of 1816, that are readily available to collectors: the George III Sixpence and the Shilling of 1787. There is a simple but almost unbelievable reason for this. These coins were struck at the Royal Mint from silver delivered from the Bank of England. The Bank decided that they would need some new shinny coins to give out to their clients at Christmas. So only the Bank of England had these silver coins, and they only handed them out during the Christmas period, and only to their wealthy clients. So now you have the whole history! You have King George III dressed in what looks like Roman armour, and on the reverse the arms of Hanover and France as well as England, Scotland, and Ireland. Back in 1787, you had to be somehow important to have one of these Shillings, important enough to do business directly with the Bank of England, and someone they wanted to treat. We have selected some very high-quality examples of this beautiful and very important historical coin for your collection.

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!
