Description Specifications Personalisation

A wonderful pint tankard with a superb story, the Kings shilling is one of our most popular tankards! With a highly polished body perfect for engraving this tankard has a double glass bottom where, sealed loosely within the the two pains is a genuine British shilling! Commemorative of the 18th century when the fooling into accepting ‘the Kings Shilling’ was a means of conscripting young men into the British Army or Royal Navy. Recruiters would trawl the inns and public houses around the docks secretively dropping the Shilling into the worthy and unsuspecting candidates ale. If the drink was finished and the coin was found this would mean a new career for the innocent customer! A wonderful tankard with a great story which is sure to please. Superbly manufactured by Wentworth of Sheffield and a great gift!
