George IV ascended to the

throne in 1820, after his

fathers death (George III).


The first King George IV

United Kingdom shilling

was minted in 1821, and the

last in 1829.


The King George IV era United Kingdom shilling had two different

obverse designs, and three reverse designs.


Obverse 1 (1821 to 1825) laureate head.

Obverse 2 (1825 to 1829) bare head, with date below.


Reverse 1 (1821) crowned shield with date below.

Reverse 2 (1823 to 1825) crowned shield in a garter, with date below.

Reverse 3 (1825 to 1829) lion standing on the royal crown.


Prior to ascension, George IV served as Prince Regent

from 1811 until 1820, due to his fathers ill health.


Dubbed 'the first gentleman of England', he was disliked

by the general population for his extravagance and lack

of leadership during the Napoleonic wars.
