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.
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.
In the United States collecting rolls of coins has always been an important part of the hobby. We don’t know if people, collect, hoard or buy to give away as gifts. In any case collecting coins by the roll is very important.
So we sent to one of our suppliers in America and bought a number of their square plastic tubes for coins. The square ones will not roll all over the place. When we describe a roll it
refers to the packaging and not the number in the roll. This particular role has 18 Florins. All coins are Queen Elizabeth II, the last year of issue of our Pre-Decimal coins. Start a new hobby, collect
Brilliant Uncirculated rolls of British coins!
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
The most difficult denomination of King George V’s coinage to get is the Silver Florin or Two
Shilling Piece. They were made in 500 fine Silver from 1920-1936 and there are two different
types. From 1920-1926 the reverse had four shield set square. From 1927-1936 the shields are set at
an angle and has more elaborate sceptres.
The hoard we bought are in Fine condition and struck in silver. We are offering dates of our choice.
Remember that these Florins are the most difficult denomination of King George V silver coins to
find. We love them and so will you.
