Coins of the United Kingdom

United Kingdom, Victoria, 20 June 1837 - 22 January 1901

Withdrawn "Shield in Garter" type. This is the first 1887 sixpence reverse type, with a crowned shield enclosed by the Garter with the date below. This type was soon withdrawn. Its likeness to the gold half-sovereign opened an easy opportunity to use gold plating for fraud. The sixpence reverse was replaced with the crown over value in wreath reverse.

England, Elizabeth I, 1558 - 1603

At twenty-five years old, Elizabeth inherited a weak bankrupt nation, torn by religious discord. Her supporters counseled that her only hope, was to marry quickly and lean upon her husband. Instead, she ruled alone for nearly half a century, driven by her genuine love for her subjects. She is perhaps the greatest English monarch in history.
