Victoria, Shilling (Large Jubilee Head) Very Good

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 Very Good. Dates are of our choice but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.

George III, Shilling (Bull Head) VG

In 1816 there was the Currency Reform Act, which allowed coins to be struck even without the Monarch’s permission. This was put into place because of King George III’s illness and the shortage of small change. From 1816 on, new designs, new weights, new everything. These are the first of the new Sterling Silver Shillings issued from 1816-1820. You have the bull head of the King on one side and a crowned shield on the other side.
