Description Fake George III ‘Bull Head’ Shilling dated 1816. After 1787 shillings were not issued again until 1816 a gap of almost 30 years. The 1816 examples featured the new "bullhead" thick necked portrait of George III and they were produced from 1816 to his death in 1820. The forgers were quick off the mark to produce imitations of this new design that was flooding into circulation.
