1834 William IV Silver Halfcrown Mantle Shield

1834 William IV Silver Halfcrown Mantle Shield Obverse

* Images are of the actual product not stock images

A collectable silver Halfcrown of King William the Fourth, dated 1834: the midpoint of his short reign. William IV would be succeeded by his niece, Victoria, in June 1837 as he had no legitimate children of his own. The obverse features a bare head portrait of the king, facing right. A small ‘w.w.’ in script on the truncation of his neck identifies the engraver as William Wyon, Chief Engraver to The Royal Mint at this time. The reverse shows a square toped shield of arms showing the royal arms of the United Kingdom with the arms of Hanover superimposed. Around and above the central shield is an elaborate ermine lined mantle, tied at the corners and surmounted by a crown. Crafted by Jean Baptiste Merlen, this reverse also appears on rare William IV Double Sovereigns and Crowns which never circulated. A great looking coin to add to any numismatic collection.
