Victoria became Queen in 1837

after the death of her uncle

(William IV), who had no

legitimate heirs.


The first Queen Victoria United

Kingdom shilling was minted

in 1838, and the last in 1901.


The Victorian era UK shilling obverse features Queen Victoria facing left.

Early to middle years show the 'young head', with the reverse showing

'ONE SHILLING' in a wreath.

The 'jubilee head' obverse was introduced in 1887, showing an older Victoria wearing a small crown. The reverse shows a crowned shield

displaying coats of arms inside a garter.

The design changed again in 1893, to the 'veiled head' obverse, with

the reverse showing 'ONE SHILLING' and the date around three shields.

Victoria was the longest reigning British monarch at

nearly 64 years, until topped by Elizabeth II in 2015.

Victoria married Albert in 1840. The pair had 9 children,

who went on to marry in to royalty across Europe.

Victoria entered a protracted period of mourning

following Albert's death in 1861, lasting many years.

The Victorian era was one of dramatic change and

development in industry, science, culture, and politics.
