Ireland 1 Shilling 1928 to 1968

These coins were minted in silver and copper-nickel between 1928 and 1968. Coins before 1951 are silver and some of them look slightly different than the picture. Notably, pre-1938 coins bear the inscription SAORSTAT EIREANN. Further, the bull pattern is used on 5 pence (5P) coins after 1968. This page applies only to 1 shilling (1S) coins.

The pre-1951 silver shillings carry catalog values approximately as follows:

PRE-1951 IRISH SHILLINGS (0.136 troy ounces silver):
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $10

The post-1950 non-precious shillings carry catalog values approximately as follows:
