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.
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
Here is one that should be a winner, judging by previous experience. A bag of 10 1948 King George
VI Florins. What is so special about the 1948 Florin. Well they changed the metal content in 1947
from silver to cupronickel and the legend on the coins was only used for two years, 1947 and 1948. So
this is a two year only type coin.
These coins are now 64 years old and are in selected circulated condition. Why a bag of 10? Because
collectors like to trade with other collectors or give them away. By selling them in bags of ten we can
also keep our prices down, as it costs us the same to handle an order for ten coins as it does for just one
