The 1909 'Bare Head' Shilling is one of only 9 different dates of the coin to be released during the short reign of Edward VII, with the others only differing in the year released, each bearing the 'Rampant Lion and Crown' design.
We have included photos of this date in very high grade and also a lower grade, please scroll through the pictures. We have many grades and dates available in Edward VII shilling and other coins of his time. Please call if you are interested.
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Contact us if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
All our coins are guaranteed genuine, and we try to grade reasonably conservatively. For customers ordering by post, we want you to be delighted when you receive your coin. We thrive on repeat business and recommendation.
The Obverse of the coin reveals a portrait of Edward VII designed by George William de Saulles. The inscription on the obverse states: "EDWARDVS VII DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX"
The reverse of the shilling features the lion on crown design, with the legend reading, "FID DEF IND IMP ONE SHILLING 1909."
