Great Britain Shilling and Half Crown  1820 to 1824
Great Britain Shilling and Half Crown 1820 to 1824

Look at the gorgeous coin in our photograph. It comes from Stack's Bowers Auctions where it sold for $655 in 2011. It is fully uncirculated with wonderful eye appeal and therefore commands high value.

The shilling and half crown denominations of George IV bear the same design, but the size is different:

SHILLING: 22 mm diameter, 0.168 troy ounces silver
HALF CROWN: 32 mm diameter, 0.420 troy ounces silver

The catalog values below are approximate:

SHILLING
worn: $25 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $100
well preserved: $300
fully uncirculated: $800

HALF CROWN
worn: $50 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $150
well preserved: $600
fully uncirculated: $1000
