1847 Victorian Jubilee Head Silver Crown Coin, High Grade, Good Detail

In good vintage condition. Despite being the longest reigning British Monarch, only three portraits were issued during Victoria’s reign. This is the first design – the Young Head.

The obverse shows a young portrait of Queen Victoria at 18 years of age, her hair arranged into a loose bun or ponytail, designed by William Wyon. Around the edge are the words: "VICTORIA DEI GRATIA 1847".

The reverse design is a crowned quartered shield in a laurel wreath. The quarters contain the arms of England, Scotland and Ireland. Beneath is a thistle, rose and shamrock. The reverse legend reads: "BRITANNIARUM REGINA FID DEF"

The edge is inscribed in incuse lettering, with cinquefoil separators and shows the regal year in Roman numerals: "DECUS ET TUTAMEN ANNO REGNI XI"
