In the short reign of King Edward VII (1901-1910) the coins were still being struck in (0.925) Sterling Silver. It was a short reign so there were not all that many coins struck and some of the dates are rare but we are offering you nice type examples for your collection, NO RARE DATES AVAILABLE. The coins are in Very Good condition.
The last Florin issued for circulation was in 1967, the first year of issue was only 1849, so it is a short lived denomination. Also as a denomination the Florin has always been the most difficult one to get. I have some nice Uncirculated Queen Elizabeth II 1966 Florins. This the penultimate year of the whole denomination.
Not easy to get, yet it is not an expensive coin.
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

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.

It is 1922 and our King is George V, our coinage is still being struck in Silver, although it is only 500 fine since 1920 and Mussolini and his Black Shirt march on Rome.

The 1922 Florins on offer are in Very Good to Fine condition and are now some 97 years old. Treat yourself, after all, haven’t you always wanted to live during the time of the flappers?
