There were two designs of Queen Victoria Jubilee Head shillings, neither of which Queen Victoria liked. The first was only issued in 1887 & 1888 and has a very small crown on her head, which made her look very big. The second type and the one we are offering you this issue is the Large Head Queen Victoria Jubilee Shilling. Issued from 1889-1892 the Mint enlarged her head to fill the whole side of the shilling, this gave a more pleasing portrait of the Queen. All the coins are struck in Sterling Silver and here we offer the Shilling Fine. Dates are of our choice but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.
In 1887 Queen Victoria allowed the Royal Mint to change her portrait on the coinage. After all, it was her Jubilee Year and they had used her Young Head portrait since 1838. The new coins came into being, along with a new denomination, the Double Florin in 1887. We have a nice little lot of the silver Shield Sixpence coins in rather choice condition. They would look great in your collection.
