Shilling, Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Shilling, Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 1816 - 1970)
Coin TypeShilling

The shilling (1/-) was a coin worth one twentieth of a pre-decimal Pound Sterling, or twelve pence. It was first minted in the reign of King Henry VII as the testoon, and became known as the shilling sometime in the mid-sixteenth century, circulating until 1990. The word bob was sometimes used for a monetary value of several shillings, e.g. "ten bob note". Following decimalisation in 1970 the coin had a value of five new pence. It was made from silver from its introduction in or around 1503 until 1947, and thereafter in CuproNickel.

Prior to Decimal Day in 1971 there were 240 pence in one pound sterling. Twelve pence made a shilling, and twenty shillings made a pound. Values less than a pound were usually written in terms of shillings and pence, e.g. forty-two pence would be three shillings and six pence (3/6), pronounced "three and six". Values of less than a shilling were simply written in terms of pence, e.g. eight pence would be 8d.

Although the coin was not minted until the sixteenth century, the value of a shilling had been used for accounting purposes since the Anglo-Saxon period. Originally, a shilling was deemed to be the value of a cow in Kent, or a sheep elsewhere. The value of one shilling equalling 12d was set by the Normans following the conquest of England in 1066; prior to this various Anglo-Saxon coins equalling 3, 4, and 12 pence had all being known as shillings.

When the currency became decimal in 1971, shillings were re-denominated as five new pence; they remained legal tender until 1990, when a smaller type of five pence replaced them.

Between the shields, a rose (above), thistle (below left) and shamrock (below right), the floral emblems of England, Scotland and Ireland respectively.

Due to the Independence of India, the "Emperor" part of the legend was dropped after 1948; the designer's initials and the roses were also removed with this change.

The first Scottish design (1937 - 1951) has a theme similar to that of the English version.
