Own one of Britain's last Silver Shillings...

Today you can secure one of the very last silver circulation coins to be struck by The Royal Mint - the George VI Shilling.

Only ever struck for 10 years between 1937 and 1946, from 500/1000 silver, the George VI Shilling marks the end of an era. In 1947 the British Government banned precious metal from our circulating coinage - forever.

Of course, at today's silver prices. the Shilling's silver content vastly outweighs the coin's original  face value - but you can still own Britain's Last Silver Shilling.

Your coin will arrive complete with a Certificate of Authenticity.

In today’s turbulent economic times, there can be no better time to remember when money was really worth something.

To secure yours - add to your basket today.
