One of the first shillings minted after the Coinage Act 1816, this coin has been slabbed by London Coin Grading Service.
This shilling has attractive toning and detail can be clearly seen.
This coin is struck in medal alignment with a milled edge.
There are two types of proof versions for the 1817 shilling, one with a plain edge and one with a milled edge which are quite rare. There is also an overstrike where the R of GEOR is struck over an E.
This slabbed shilling is graded as CGS 85 which is the equivalent of the MS65. We would grade this coin as about Uncirculated.
The laureate head of George III has been used on the 1817 shilling. George III faces right.
The legend reads "GEOR III DG BRITT REX FD - 1817".
The reverse shows a crowned shield within a garter. The garter has a circumscription which reads, "HONI SOIT Q MAL Y PENSE".
