In the shilling series, the scarcest dates are 1915 H, 1921 star and 1933. For unclear reasons, the date 1922 was badly struck in all silver denominations. Well struck-up examples of the dates 1924, 1926 and 1927 are also difficult to find. During World War II, the quality of striking for most coins deteriorated. There were a number of reasons for this. Less care was taken in the preparation of the dies, the dies were used in longer production runs before being replaced, and quality controls were relaxed as more pressing matters of war took precedence.

For King George VI issues from 1937, the reverse design was changed to a ram's head.

King Edward VII

Australia’s first silver shillings were struck in sterling silver (92.5% silver, 7.5% copper) dated 1910 from the London Mint and don’t feature a mintmark.

King George V

Also struck in London between 1911-1915, these did not carry a mintmark. Also in 1915, the Heaton Mint (“H” mintmark) struck shillings. From 1916-1926 the Melbourne and Sydney Mints struck silver shillings. Shillings were exclusively struck from 1927 to 1936 at the Melbourne Mint.

King George VI

The Melbourne Mint kept striking shillings from 1937 to 1952. In 1942, 1943 and 1944 the San Francisco mint (“S” mintmark) struck shillings. In 1946, the Perth Mint struck shillings, mintmarked with a dot before “Shilling”.

Queen Elizabeth II

From 1953 to 1963, the Melbourne Mint struck shillings exclusively.
