During the reign of Charles II milled shillings began to be produced in
very large numbers, although collecting the series is complicated by
the wide range of provenance marks and dates, the former indicating the
origin of the metal used for the
Milled shillings from 1658 weigh about 6.0 g and have a diameter of
25-26 mm. in this picture is 
King Charles II 1663 shilling coin

King James II Shilling  coins were minted in 1685-1688– King William  III and Queen Mary  coins were minted in 1692-1693.   A most interesting variety occurs amongst the issues of William III,
where the error of date 1669 was made instead of 1696. During this
reign several provincial mints were in use, and their coins are
indicated by a letter under the bust. The

An interesting coin of George II is the Lima shilling, which has the
word LIMA under the king's bust to indicate that it was made from
silver captured by Admiral Anson. This

George III
There are two famous rarities of George III. The first is the
Northumberland Shilling of 1763. This was distributed by Hugh, Earl of
Northumberland on his installation in Dublin as Viceroy of Ireland.
About 150 pounds worth was minted, representing 3000 shillings, a very
small mintage. In this picture The
