Currently, stickers, smartphone cases and a variety of shirts and hoodies are being offered for sale with the New Sherlock Coin design.

Redbubble Sherlock Shilling ShirtThe second artist we will discuss has the profile name of gasponce. This artist has created a design called Sherlock Shilling! The design features busts of Watson facing left and Holmes facing right. A crown is at the top of the coin and the date of 1887. On each side is the wording ONE SHILLING. Below the two busts is a shield and a ribbon with the names of Dr. Watson and Mr. Holmes.

Redbubble Sherlock ShillingGasponce commented about their design on her Tumblr page: “In 1887, to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, a new older “Jubilee Head” of the queen was used to make a new shilling. That year was also the start of Sherlock Holmes’ adventures! So combining the two I made a celebratory new shilling!“

Currently, various forms of apparel, smartphone cases, skins, wall art, home decor, bags and stationery are offered with the Sherlock Shilling design. This artist has even more products with this design at their sØciety6 webpage.
