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.
