The 1940 one shilling coin no longer had (Saorstát Éireann) inscription circling around. from 1938 to 1968 it was  changed to éire on the left of the harp and the date on the right.          

The 1940 one shilling (1s) (Irish: scilling) coin (Featuring a Bull ) was a subdivision of the pre-decimal Irish pound, 1/20 of (£1) or 12d & was linked to the British Currency. 

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.
