1812 George III Eighteenpence Bank Token

1812 George III Eighteenpence Bank Token

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A very collectable silver Bank of England issue Eighteenpence (1 shilling and a sixpence) token of king George the Third dated 1812, the obverse features the draped and laureate bust of the king facing right, as the reverse shows the value and date within a wreath of laurel and oak leaves with acorns .These fascinating coins were struck after the emergency counter stamped coins along with the Bank of England Dollar re strikes on Spanish silver, due to the shortage of silver from the costly Napoleonic war. This was at time when the Royal mint was not producing crown coinage and the authority came from the Bank of England, thus technically making them a token, but circulated as legal tender coinage, a fascinating area to start collecting.
