This shilling from 1745–46 has been struck in fine silver and is in Fine condition. The obverse features a coinage portrait of George II, the second Hanoverian king to sit on the British throne. Some silver coins struck between the years 1745 and 1746 bear a ‘LIMA’ mint mark to denote that the silver was mined in Peru. There is debate as to how this silver made its way to The Royal Mint but it is thought that it was captured from foreign ships travelling back from the Peruvian mines.
