The British one shilling predecimal coin has the same value as a modern 5p coin. It is the equivalent of 1/20 of a Pound Sterling. The 1 shilling coin was often referred to as a ‘bob’. The notation of a one shilling was ‘1/-‘. The design of the cupronickel one shilling coin features the Coat of Arms of England and a portrait of the Monarch (King George VI or Queen Elizabeth II).
