1825 shilling

Recommended Posts

Thinking of adding this to my collection, it's only cheap little add on but still would like one in my collection.

At this price which is cheap would you guys buy it

I really like UK predecimal silver coins, but personally I wouldn't - unless I particularly needed to own an example of that shilling with that date.

You can get an 1826 (more common) shilling of that design in better grade for the same, or less, money.  

Alternatively - if you want a type example of that shiiling, pay a little bit more for an 1826 in nicer condition - or perhaps buy an 1827 or 1829 in similar grade to that eBay 1826, which would probably hold its value better from a scarcity point of view.  

But if you like it, and given that it's 'only' £20 - buy it, and enjoy being its custodian 😃

I do like the George coins..I have a few Gold sovreigns..

If you want to collect George IV silver (I don't know your budget) but I would spend a little more and get a nicer condition one. The one you are looking at is an ok'ish price considering the wear but there are better examples out there for a few pounds more....

The George IV halfcrowns are my favourite of that period.  If you had a nice example of all 3 reverse designs minted during his reign I think that would give you a lot of pleasure.

I have 1821, 1823, 1828 and 1829 examples in decent-ish grades and they are among the last predecimal coins that I would ever sell.  The 1821 in particular!
