Assorted Shillings for your viewing pleasure


Recommended Posts

I just love British and Scottish Shillings. The size of the coins are pleasing to me, and some of the designs are incredibly detailed. I don't have many yet, but I'm working on correcting that ;)

:ninja: OK, spill it! Where do you shop!!!!!

 

A variety of places ... The 1817 was from the last local coin show, the 1901 was from a guy at the local coin club, the 1935 was from a local coin shop, the 1937, 1950's and 1953's are from proof (specimen) sets I got from two different guys on another coin forum.

Sweet...how far is that to a complete schilling type set?

 

Wow ... not very far at all, I'm afraid. Just from George III onward there will be at least 33 types.

If Auldfartte is going down the road of Shilling type set then theres;

 

George IV Type 1 (garnished shield?)

George IV Type 2 (a different type of shield)

George IV Type 3 (lion on crown)

William IV (This is my favourite!)

Victoria Young

Victoria Jubilee

Edward VII

George V Type 1 (lion on crown with inner circles, this is my fave of the moderns)

George VI Type 1 Scottish

Elizabeth II Type 2 English

Elizabeth II Type 2 Scottish

 

 

I did collect shillings but i got fed up of all the English, Scottish variants... doubles the amount of coins you have to get from 1937-1970.

 

Which was the factor that inevitably led me to switch to sixpences.
