William IV Coins | William IV Gold and Silver Coins

William IV Coins

William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 – 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837. The third son of George III, William succeeded his elder brother George IV, becoming the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover.



Gold Coins

The popular William IV coin is an outstanding example of the post-Victorian Gold Sovereign. This gold sovereign overall design features are among its most compelling details. Its reverse shows the famous crowned shield and mantle design by Johann Baptiste Merlen that replaced the George and Dragon design favoured for much of the Victorian era and the coin's date of issue. The obverse carries the famous bare-headed bust of HM King William IV facing to the right, his nose level with the second 'I' in BRITANNIA in the Latin inscription '"GULIELMUS IIII D:G:BRITANNIAR:REX F:D:"

Silver Coins

William IV coins tend to be very popular with investors as the king only had a relatively brief reign. Consequently, there are fewer silver coins from this time period still about. During William IV’s reign silver Crowns were not issued at all for general circulation, however, some proofs and patterns were. These are now highly sought after and can fetch considerable prices.

Copper and Bronze Coins

The smallest was the farthing, worth a quarter of a penny, then the halfpenny (pronounced ‘haypenny’) the penny, the two-penny piece (pronounced ‘tu-pence’) and a four-penny piece, previously known as a groat.
