Never before offered by Downies in our 90 years in the industry, we are delighted to give one of our clients the chance to secure a truly great British rarity – the King George I 1723 WCC Silver Shilling!

Struck 299 years ago, the utterly unique 1723 WCC Silver Shilling is recognised by several very particular features. On the obverse, below the portrait of the first king from the House of Hanover, you will find the letters WCC. These letters denote the origin of the silver with which the Royal Mint struck these coins – silver that had been unearthed in Wales by the Welsh Copper Company. On the reverse, interlinked C’s and Welsh plumes are depicted alternately in the angles of the crowned shields.

These fascinating distinguishing features are only found upon the George I shilling, and only from 1723 to 1726. Struck in limited numbers by the Royal Mint, and with so many coins naturally being lost or melted for the intrinsic value in the near three centuries since struck, it will come as no surprise that this unique, highly desirable type is excessively rare in all grades. As we have NEVER offered this exceptional 18th century British type, the single available example will be snapped up instantly. Immediate action is essential.
