Sales History


The 1911 Shilling was the first year of the George V shilling series and was struck at the Royal Mint in London to a mintage of 1,700,000. This relatively low mintage for a first of series makes it a difficult coin to acquire in any grade. The average example of the date grades betweenG and VG and obtaining examples beyond this is particularlychallenging. No significant hoards of 1911 shillings surfaced though some mint-state examples are known. In mint-state it is about twice as common as the elusive 1912 and 1914 shilling but is scarcer than the 1914 shilling. Like the 1910 it generally exhibits surfaces hairlines due to the distribution process from England making it extremely difficult to obtain beyond MS64.
