1697, William III, Silver Sixpence. From the period of the Great Recoinage. This came about after the decision was taken to withdraw hammered coinage in England and replace it with superior milled pieces. The work was done at five provincial mints and was often of doubtful quality because the workforce taken on for this task was inexperienced and time pressure made matters worse. Coming out from this time is a very large number of varieties. This coin dating from 1697 has the 3rd bust of King William and large crowns above the shields. In excellent condition this piece would be an attractive part of any collection of this period. Spink 3538, CC Ref # GS-4, EF

1743, George II Shilling, The older portrait of King George II, introduced in 1743, was largely the work of John Sigismund Tanner, who had become Chief Engraver in 1741.

1826, George IV, Silver Sixpence. The early George IV sixpences depicted a laureate head of the king, which was thought not to be very flattering and was much disapproved of by the monarch. So in 1826 the king's head was replaced by a bare head design by William Wyon. The sixpence was the last of the main silver coinage to discard the laureate bust. The reverse was by Johann Baptiste Merlen. There were three designs, the last being the lion on crown motif. This design surfaced again on George V sixpences almost 100 years later. This is an excellent example of this coin type.Spink 3815, CC Ref # GS-6, aEF
