  Proofs Exist   

The shilling (1s) (Irish: scilling) coin (Featuring a Bull ) was a subdivision of the pre-decimal Irish pound, worth 1/20 of a pound.

The original minting of the coin from 1928 until 1942 contained 75% silver; this Irish coin had a higher content than the equivalent British coin.

The coin measured 0.935 inches (23.7 mm) in diameter and weighed 5.655 grams; this did not change with cupro-nickel coin. The last shillings were minted in 1968.

The reverse design featuring a bull was by English artist Percy Metcalfe The obverse featured the Irish Harp. From 1928 to 1937 the date was split either side of the harp with the name saorstát éireann circling around. From 1938 to 1968 the inscription changed to éire on the left of the harp and the date on the right.                                PM on the bottom  left over the scilling is the initials of the designer Percy Metcalfe
