William IV, Shilling Very Good
King William IV 1830-1837, was known as the Sailor King. When you joined the services you were said ‘to take the King’s shilling’ and that is what we are offering you. These are Sterling Silver Shillings that were only struck for circulation between 1834 and 1837. The bare head of the King on one side is a crowned value within a wreath, a simple but elegant design. Dates of our choice but all of them are over 185 years old and a real antique.
