Victoria, Old Head Shilling Fair, 1893-1901

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 is Fair: a lot of wear and some of the lettering may be worn away.

Picture of British West Africa, 1/10thd 1926

British West Africa, 1/10thd 1926

In 1926 British West Africa still existed and in 1926 Princess Elizabeth was born. British West Africa struck a small coin with a star on it and a hole in the center. Not planed that way but what a wonderful coincident.A coin with a star to celebrate her birthday. The coin from the year of our Queen’s birth (1926) has a denomination of 1/10th of a Penny. The hole was so the natives who did not have pockets, could thread the coins on string and wear them around their necks. They wore their tributes to their future Queen. These coins are in Uncirculated condition but have toned down a bit over the past 95 years. They look great but are in short supply.
