A silver Shilling?
The best thing about this sterling silver ring is the fact that it creates a wonderful talking point and really fires up your imagination. How much was this coin worth to someone in the time it was put into circulation? was it a huge part of their wages or was it pocket change for a wealthy family? what would this shilling have paid for? for an example a ‘skilled seamstress’ in Victorian times would have earned approx 7 Shillings a day. However work was not constant and guaranteed in addition they would have had to provide all their own materials. With this in mind and the fact that a single room in a relatively poor area of London would have cost approx 6-8 shillings a week, it seems that a shilling was a great deal of money in the time it was minted.
