VIRGINIA NAMED AFTER QUEEN ELIZABETH

The state of Virginia was named after England's Queen Elizabeth I. In the early 1600's, all of North America that was not Spanish or French was then called "Virginia" in honor of "The Virgin Queen," and the earliest English colonial expeditions were sent by the Virginia Company of London. We offer five nice shillings of Queen Elizabeth minted during her reign. Similar specimens have been found in early English settlements and are typical of the early coinage of the colonies. All coins are hammer struck resulting usually in some soft strikes.
