Elizabeth I Shilling
Sterling Silver Elizabethan coins . . .
Sterling silver Shillings were struck at the Tower of London for Elizabeth I from 1558 to 1562, and again from 1582 to 1602, and some milled silver Shillings were struck experimentally in 1560 and 1561.
In keeping with the return to high silver content in coins of Edward VI’s reign, Elizabethan shillings are composed of 92.5% silver.
