1787 Shilling_obv

George III, Shilling 1787 Extremely Fine

Most will know about the illness of King George III, but most don’t know that because of that illness the King would not allow a law to make smaller coins to be passed. This of course caused a lot of problems with day to day commerce; there just were not enough small coins around to make change. There are only two silver coins struck before the Currency Reform Act of 1816, that are readily available to collectors: the George III Sixpence and the Shilling of 1787. There is a simple but almost unbelievable reason for this. These coins were struck at the Royal Mint from silver delivered from the Bank of England. The Bank decided that they would need some new shinny coins to give out to their clients at Christmas. So only the Bank of England had these silver coins, and they only handed them out during the Christmas period, and only to their wealthy clients. So now you have the whole history! You have King George III dressed in what looks like Roman armour, and on the reverse the arms of Hanover and France as well as England, Scotland, and Ireland. Back in 1787, you had to be somehow important to have one of these Shillings, important enough to do business directly with the Bank of England, and someone they wanted to treat. We have selected some very high-quality examples of this beautiful and very important historical coin for your collection.

Picture of Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

Victoria, Double Florin 1887-1890 Extremely Fine

When Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 1887, she not only allowed them to change her portrait but also to issue a new denomination. That was the Double Florin which was equivalent to Four Shillings. It was almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. Today we have an equivalent coin, but we call it a 20 Pence. Shows what time and inflation will do to money. The Double Florin was also known as the Bar-Maids ruin. After she had had a few drinks, the bar-maid would often give change for a Crown and not a Double Florin. That Shilling difference was a lot of money and came directly from the Bar-Maids wages. This Double Florin was only made from 1887-1890. In the past we have offered the Queen Victoria Double Florin in Fine and even in Very Fine, now we can offer them in Extremely Fine condition. These are super coins and most are dated 1887, remember they are struck in Sterling Silver and they have the Jubilee Head portrait of the Queen.
