Friday Favorite: Coins of the United Kingdom

Our Favorite this week is for you visual learners out there: pictures of coins minted in the UK during the reign of George III. Clicking any of the individual coins will get you a nice close-up (like the one pictured below of a 3 shilling coin from 1812), so you can see the color of each coin (and therefore which metal its made from), read the inscriptions, and compare variations of the same denomination (if there were variations). There are also coins pictures from the Anglo Saxon period right up through present day. Click here to check it out!
