This is number two from the group of three finds that came in from Alan Reynolds. It’s a milled silver sixpence but it dates from a fairly scarce reign.
Everybody has heard of one or more English kings named George and Queen Victoria is known even better. George IV died in 1830 and Victoria came to the throne in 1837. Between the two was William IV, who, despite the fact that he reigned for seven years, hardy anyone has heard of!
Pictured here is a William IV sixpence, which is dated 1835 on the reverse. It’s scarce as a detecting find but isn’t particularly scarce in itself. The coin would grade Fine and in its present condition it should be worth £10 – £12 to a collector.
