£1,250.00
A very collectable silver Northumberland Shilling of King George III, dated 1763 and graded by NGC. The obverse features the young, draped, laureate bust of King George III, facing right. The reverse shows crowned cruciform shields of arms with plain angles around a central garter star. The legend around, when translated, reads: ‘King of Great Britain, France and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, Duke of Brunswick and Lueneburg. Holy Roman Empire, Arch-Treasurer and Prince Elector. 1763 Shillings are known as ‘Northumberland Shillings’ because Hugh Percy, 2nd Earl (later 1st Duke) of Northumberland is said to have distributed £100 worth of these coins while parading the streets of Dublin after his installation as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in that year. This highly graded silver coin represents an interesting snippet of Anglo-Irish history and a great addition to any collection. Weight: 6.02 grams. Diameter: 25.00 millimetres. Edge: angled milled. Grade: NGC AU 58 (ref: 6029549-006). References: ESC 1214, S 3742.
