At the end of the pre-decimal series, many of the dates are difficult to get in Uncirculated
condition. This 1963 Florin is no exception, after all the Florin is the most difficult
denomination to get in Uncirculated.
These were put away at the time they were issued, which is now 55 years ago. Queen
Elizabeth II coins are much underappreciated, especially when you are looking for them.
1945 was the next to last year that our coinage was struck in silver, the penultimate year. The
Florin is the second largest denomination struck and as most collectors know, the most difficult
denomination to get. King George VI was on the throne, by the way a Florin was two
shillings, today it is 10 pence.
The coins on offer are not only struck in Silver but they are in Gem Uncirculated condition,
you just cannot get any higher grade then Gem. Supplies are of course very limited, but think
what a fantastic type coin these will make.
When they were waiting for Decimal coins, collectors were buying all the dates they
didn’t have of the pre-decimal coins for their collections. The prices went through the
roof and factoring inflation and the cost of living, these coins are much more reasonable
today, than they were 50 years ago.
The coins in most cases are still as difficult as they were then to find in Uncirculated condition,
it is just that in today’s money, they are actually much more reasonable.
Elizabeth II, The Last 1967 Florin. Brilliant Uncirculated. In 1967 the Royal Mint issued its last ever Florin for circulation. Although it had an exact
decimal equivalent, the 10p, they decided to stop making them. As most collectors know the
florin is the most difficult of the denominations to get.
We can offer the last ever, the 1967 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition for just £4.00.
At one time a number of years ago, we had to pay that price to get them. But a fortunate find,
in our basement, allows us to offer them to you. Limit of three coins per collector and well
