500 Years of Kings and Queens… on coins!

The history of the British Isles has been defined by many different monarchs, all of which have had an impact on our nation’s rich heritage. And all of them (except King Edward VIII) have had coins issued bearing their likeness, whether they be silver, bronze or gold.

So I put together the timeline below to give you a glimpse of currency from centuries ago and take you on a historic numismatic journey...

    Should it read William IV not William VI (1830) and George IV not George VI (1820)

    Nice idea. Pity you couldn’t get the Roman numerals correct for all of the monarchs.
