Victoria, Old Head Shilling Fine

The third and last design of the Victorian coinage was the Old Head type issued from 1893- 1901. You have the bust of Queen Victoria wearing a widow’s headdress and the other side has three shields in a circle. The coins are struck in Sterling Silver and were made for every year from 1893-1901. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. These coins were struck at the end of the longest reign of any British Monarch, although our own Queen is quickly getting close to over taking her. These Queens Shillings are available in different grades to fit more collector’s pockets. The grade offered here us Fine: all details readable and less wear, a very presentable coin.

Victoria, Shilling (Jubilee Head) 1887 Extremely Fine

We have bought a nice group of the 1887 Queen Victoria Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Shillings in Extremely Fine condition, a very high grade. 1887 is the first year of issue of this short-lived type. In fact, Queen Victoria did not like her portrait on this coin, this design was only issued for two years 1887 and 1888. All of the coins on offer are struck in 1887 in Sterling Silver. You have Queen Victoria on one side with a very small crown on her head. This is what she didn’t like because she felt that it made her look silly. On the reverse, you have a crowned set of arms within a Garter. The coins are Extremely Fine.

Victoria, Shilling 1887 About Uncirculated

We have a nice little box full of Queen Victoria 1887 Jubilee Head Shillings. These are coins that we would call About Uncirculated and we guess most coin dealers would call Uncirculated. As they have come in, in collections and purchases over the counter, we have placed them in my little box. They are almost nice enough to be called Uncirculated, but they are too nice to just sell as Extremely Fine, if you know what we mean. They are struck in Sterling Silver and this design was only used for two years, 1887 and 1888. The coins are very nice and we think you will like the price as well, but remember it is only a little box and supplies are limited…

Victoria, Shilling Choice Uncirculated 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 shilling in choice uncirculated grade.

Victoria, Young Head Shilling Very Good

Victoria came to the throne a very young woman, I believe she was only 18 when she became Queen. Her first coins carried a very youthful portrait of Queen Victoria a portrait carried on for the next 50 years. The Shilling was struck in Sterling Silver and because they were used every day, they come well circulated. We can offer them in two grades, Fair and Very Good but remember that the newest coin is now 130 years old. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.
