1804 King George III Bank Of England Emergency Issue Silver Five Shillings Dollar

1804 George III Bank of England Dollar Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A very collectable silver Bank of England emergency issue Dollar, dated 1804. The obverse features the laureate bust of king George the Third, facing left. The reverse shows the seated figure of Britannia holding a spear and a branch, a shield resting near her and a beehive behind. These emergency issue dollars, designed by Conrad Heinrich Kucher, were issued to replace the Countermarked types still using the original Spanish specie, but using Mathew Boulton’s new presses to re-strike. Occasionally, shadows of the original Spanish coin can be seen. These B.O.E. Dollars have numerous variations. This coin has the top head leaf to the centre of ‘E’, only one stop after ‘REX’ and the engravers initials as ‘:C . H . K’ to the obverse. The reverse has a very small inverted incuse ’K’ under the shield to the left. A fascinating piece.
