shilling coins from 1830 to 1837.

William IV became king in

1830 at age 62 after the death

of his brother (George IV),

who had no surviving heirs.


The first King William IV

United Kingdom shilling was

minted in 1834, and the

last in 1837.


The King William IV era United Kingdom shilling obverse

features the bare head of William IV facing right.


The reverse shows the words 'ONE SHILLING' with the

Royal Crown above, and a small scroll below, surrounded

by an oak wreath, tied with a bow.


Below the wreath is the date.

Dubbed 'the sailor king' for his naval service in his

younger years, William had not expected to be King.

William did not marry, due primarily to the Royal

Marriages Act of 1772, which forbade decendants

of George II from marriage without consent from the

monarch, or privy council. William did have a defacto

relationship producing many children. None were

considered legitimate, so had no claim on the throne.
