Great Britain Shilling 1953 to 1970 | britain shilling great lion nickel shield regina inward woman def elizabeth fid head circle half gratia ii dei crown lower These are modern coins made of copper-nickel and are worth very little. A collector will spend a few US dollars to add a pristine specimen to his or her collection. Other than that, the value is less than $1.

Some coins have a Scottish coat of arms with one lion, while others have the English arms with three lions. Value is the same for both.
