King’s Shilling Tankard

Legend tells us that 18th century Royal Navy press gangs would hide a signing-up bounty (the ‘King’s Shilling’) in the ‘free pints’ that they offered to unsuspecting sailors in waterside taverns. Drinking the beer was deemed to be acceptance of the money, and commitment to Naval service. The glass-bottomed tankard was said to have been invented so that men would spot the trick before it was too late. In commemoration, this one-pint Sheffield pewter tankard has a double glass bottom with a genuine old shilling sandwiched between.

The King’s Shilling story is engraved on one side, with a personalisation panel for up to three initials on the reverse.
