George VI 1944 Florin Unc

We just bought a hoard of the 1944 King George VI Silver Florin, what was special is that they were all in Uncirculated condition. World War II was still raging and the coins were still struck in silver. You have the bare head of King George VI on the obverse and Rose with a crown, a thistle and a shamrock on the reverse. The Florin is the most difficult coin to get in high grade and all of these 1944 King George VI Florins are in Uncirculated condition. Well worth having.

1962 Florin BU

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 especially in Uncirculated condition. Just that in today’s money, they are actually much more reasonable. This issue we have the 1962 Florin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition to offer you, but unfortunately our supply is rather limited. Not an easy coin to find, even in small quantities, but we found them. If you need this coin, now is the time to buy one for your collection.

Victoria Gothic Florin Fair

The first British decimal coin was the Florin or Two Shillings which today is the 10p. First issued in 1849 and changed to the Gothic design in 1851 these florins were struck in Sterling Silver. You have a crowned portrait of Queen Victoria facing left on the obverse and four crowned coats of arms on the reverse. The strangest things is that a large part of the population was illiterate, yet instead of putting the date in what is known today as Arabic numerals, they put the date in Roman numerals. So that a large part of the populace could not even read the date that was on the coin. As 1851 became MDCCCLI. The coins on offer have seen considerable circulation, but don’t forget that even the most modern of the coins is today 132 years old. We have made sure that you can make out the date, even if only the last digits are clear.

Bag of 10 1948 Florins

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 coin.

Victoria JH Florin VF

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17 year old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. We can offer the Jubilee Head Sterling Silver Florins of Queen Victoria issued 1887-1892 in two different grades. Dates will be of our choice, but the more coins you order, the more different dates we will try and give you. On one side you have the Jubilee Head bust of the Queen with a rather silly small sized crown on her head. The other side has four coats of arms. All of these Jubilee Head Florins are struck in Sterling Silver and they are, despite what Victoria thought, rather attractive. We can offer them here in Very Fine, they are nice collectable examples.
