In 1927 Australia issued its first commemorative Florin. It was for the opening of their new Parliament building in Canberra. They have a portrait of King George V
on one side and the new Parliament building on the other side. They are struck in Sterling Silver and usually come in Very Fine condition.
I managed to buy just 10 pieces in About Uncirculated condition. They are difficult to find in such a high grade.
This Scarce Crown or One Peso was issued by the Dominican Republic for the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, and was struck by our own Royal Mint.
It was issued in 1995 which is now some 25 years ago. You almost never see this crown, because the whole United Nations project was not a winner for the Mint.
It has doves of peace above a globe of the world with the United Nations emblem. The obverse has the arms of the Dominican Republic.
We could charge a lot of money for this Scarce Crown, but at Coincraft when we buy right, you buy right…
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.
If you're looking for a bargain, this is piece is certainly one. The Royal Mint has charged between £82.00-£88.00 for silver proof £5 pieces. You can have this 2018 Sapphire Jub Coronation £5 Silver Proof while stocks last for just £49.50. Get it while you can! It is certainly a bargain at our price of just £49.50.
