Great Britain 6 Pence and Shilling  1825 to 1829
Great Britain 6 Pence and Shilling 1825 to 1829

The toning on this silver coin is so strong, it looks like a copper piece. But it is silver, stained naturally over the years by atmospheric impurities. It is a beautiful specimen, in my opinion. But many collectors shun toned coins.

CoinQuest thanks British coin expert Tony Clayton for use of his coin image.

I have both an 1826 and 1827 dated shilling. The 1826 coin is in better condition but I believe the 1827 version is more rare and hence valuable due to a considerably smaller amount being minted, is this true?
Yes. Do you see our note 'shillings dated 1827 catalog at $350 in well preserved condition'? We try to call out the better date coins while giving general values for common date coins. Mintages are important, but do not always indicate rarity. Sometimes coins are minted and then intentionally melted later for their metal content. The only sure way of determining value is to watch auction results. That's what we, and all catalogers, do to estimate value. - CoinQuest (Paul)
