William IV 1836 Halfcrown, penultimate year of reign

William IV (1830-37), silver Halfcrown, 1836, engraved by William Wyon, bare head right, W W italic script incuse on truncation, legend GULIELMUS IIII D: G: BRITANNIAR: REX F: D: with S over S in King's name, toothed border around rim both sides, rev. quartered shield of arms with a crowned escutcheon of the Arms of Hanover, within Order of the Garter upon crowned robed mantle, date below ANNO 1836, weight 14.14g (Bull 2484 R3; Davies 325; ESC 657; S.3834A). Lightly toned, almost extremely fine, Bull gives the variety as rare, but would seem to be light doubling on the legend in the striking.

The Latin legends translates on obverse as "William the Fourth by the Grace of God, King of the Britains, Defender of the Faith," and on the reverse "In the year 1836."
