Victoria, Sixpence Choice Uncirculated, 1887

In 1887 Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee 1837-1887, so for the first time in 50 years she allowed the design of the coinage to be changed. The Sixpence had a shield on the reverse, which didn’t work at all. Crooks were gold plating them and passing them off as Half Sovereigns. So later in the year they changed the reverse and added a value within the wreath. We have a nice group of choice examples of both types of Jubilee Sixpences with the wreath reverse and the shield reverse. The coins are in Choice Uncirculated condition and are getting more and more difficult to find.

Victoria, Sixpence 1887 Choice Uncirculated

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.

Edward VII, Shilling 1907 VG-Fine

Edward VII’s reign was very short, as he had to wait for his mother, Queen Victoria, to pass before he could become King. Coins for this Monarch were only issued from 1902-1910. Here we offer the 1907 Shilling. The Shilling was of course given to individuals when they joined the Services. You were said to take the King’s Shilling. This 1907 Shilling is in Very Good-Fine condition, and it was struck in Sterling Silver, which is the finest silver that a coin actually meant to be used was struck in.
