A special tribute to the Rarest Shilling in the world issued 200 years after the end of the reign of King George III

STRICTLY LIMITED TO JUST 2020 GOLD PROOF COINS

A fascinating tale of a group of savvy bankers taking advantage of a sudden drop in the value of silver in 1798, the Dorrien Magens Shilling was never released into circulation when the Royal Mint ‘cottoned on’ to the idea and halted distribution. Approximately 30,000 coins were ordered to be melted but a discrepancy in records indicated 285 coins had ‘gone astray’. Today there are only 20 coins believed to have remained with 8 pieces held in museums and only 4 pieces seen in market during the last 10 years.

This stunning 2020 Quarter Sovereign Gold Proof coin tells the story of the famous ‘Dorrien and Magens shilling’ of 1798, King George III’s rarest shilling, in memory of his reign. Featuring a beautifully engraved reverse this Quarter Sovereign promises to be one of the stand out pieces in our new 2020 Sovereign Proof Coin Collection.

THE FULL 2020 SOVEREIGN COLLECTION WILL LAUNCH ON 31ST MARCH 2020

THE 2020 SOVEREIGN COLLECTION

King George III ascended the British throne in 1760 and was to become England’s longest ruling monarch until his granddaughter Queen Victoria. During his 59-year reign he presided over victory in the Seven Years’ War, a successful resistance to the threat of a Revolutionary and Napoleonic France and most famously the loss of the American Revolution. His reign saw the acquisition of Australia and New Zealand to the British Empire, the abolition of the Slave Trade throughout British colonies and the uniting of Great Britain and Ireland by the Act of Union creating a new ‘United Kingdom’. A devoted family man King George III was conscientious and well educated with a keen interest in science and the arts.

Commemorating one of Britain’s most famous and controversial monarchs on the 200th anniversary of the end of his reign in 1820, this series of five 2020 Sovereign denominations promises to be one of the most faithful and unique tributes to his reign celebrating some of his most exceptional coin designs and exploring the fascinating stories behind them.
