Here’s all the shilling coins we’ve found since February 2016.
The shilling was originally a hammered silver coin valued at 12 pence (12d). The shilling was first produced under Henry VII (1485-1509) as a “Testoon” and the final hammered Shillings were produced under Charles II between 1660-1662. Cromwell introduced the first milled Shilling coins in 1658 which carried right through until the last Shillings were minted in 1970 under Elizabeth II when Britain switched to a decimal system.
