In 1887, for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, the Royal Mint issued new coins with the
Jubilee Head of Victoria, but they also issued a new denomination, the Double Florin. The
only problem is that the Double Florin (4 Shillings) looked very similar to the Crown (5
Shillings). It got the nickname of the Bar Maids Ruin, as later at night after a few complimentary
drinks, the bar maid would often give change for a Crown when in fact she was given
a Double Florin.
This denomination proved unpopular and it was discontinued in 1890. The coins on offer
are struck in Sterling Silver and in Very Fine condition. This is a high grade for the issue and
much more difficult to get than many people realise. Get them while you can, it has taken us
a year to accumulate this small quantity.
In our opinion, the Old Head or Widow Head but of Queen Victoria is the most underappreciated of the three different busts made during her reign. Here we offer the Old Head Farthing in VG-F. Dates will be of our choice.
In the reign of Queen Victoria they changed the metal content of our smallest coins from Copper to Bronze. The new coins 1860-1895 were thinner and easier to use, they probably also cost the Royal Mint less to make…We are offering the pair of Copper Queen Victoria Farthing and Bronze Queen Victoria farthing in Very Good to Fine condition. It is a very interesting period and an important change over in British coinage, the next one wasn’t until 1920.
Victoria came to the throne a very young woman, she was only 18 when she became Queen. Her first coins carried a very youthful portrait of Queen Victoria a portrait carried on for the next 50 years.
The Shilling was struck in Sterling Silver and because they were used every day, they come well-circulated. We offer them here in Fair conditio; remember that the newest coin is now 130 years old. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you.
