George III became king upon

his grandfather's, (George II),

death in 1760, his own father

having died in 1751.


The first King George III

British shilling was

minted in 1763, and the

last in 1820.

The King George III era British shilling had two different designs.


Pre-formation of the UK, the shilling obverse features the armored

laureate bust of George III, facing right.

The reverse shows a cruciform of shields with emblems of George's

royal claims, crowns in diagonals between, and date below.


Post-formation of the UK, the shilling obverse features the laureate head

of George III facing right, with date below.

The reverse shows the UK coat of arms, with the royal crown above.  

George III is primarily remembered as the mad king,

and for losing the American colonies, however was

reigning at the formation of the United Kingdom of

Great Britain and Ireland, and oversaw the discovery

and settlement of new colonies, including in Australia.

From 1811 his eldest son (George IV) acted as Regent,

due to his father's ill health.
