Description

The only British colony allowed to have coinage under law was Virginia. And while the copper Halfpennies of 1773 circulated widely, the Silver Shilling pattern of 1774 was not widely known. Only 5 proof specimens of the coin are known today. The original coin shared many design elements of the Gold Guineas that circulated widely at the time.

  • Obverse: Bust of George III with long hair and the legend GEORGIVS | III DEI l GRATIAl
  • Reverse: The Crowned Arms of Virginia surrounded by the legend VIRGINIA l Hallmarked within the crossbar of the shield “***”
