Victoria Young Head Shield back 1838 - 1887

Our specific year Victoria Yound Head Shield Back coins are selected from only the finest condition coins in our stocks and will be significantly higher in grade compared to our Specific Head sovereigns.  We aim for a coin grade of F to VF (fine to very fine).  Coins in this category will be listed with the photograph of the actual coin rather than a generic picture.
