Australia, Last Silver Florin AU-Unc_obv

Australia, Florin (Last Silver Florin) AU-Unc

The Florin, or two shillings, was fi rst issued in Australia in 1910 under King Edward VII and last issued under Queen Elizabeth II in the 1960’s. All Australian Florins are struck in silver, something we changed in this country in 1947. We have a nice group that have just come in of Queen Elizabeth silver Florins in About Uncirculated to Uncirculated condition. Most dealers would call these coins Uncirculated, but at Coincraft we are a bit more conservative. Dates will be of our choice but we have at least three different dates in stock. Beautiful coins, at least 50 years old struck in silver and this denomination no longer exists in Australian coinage, get them while you can.

Australia, George V Sixpence

In 1910 Australia struck its first-ever Silver coins. The next coins issued carried the face of King George V. Australia carried on striking George V coins until 1936. One interesting note about the Sixpences of King George V is that they were struck in Sterling Silver. We stopped using Sterling Silver in our coins in 1919. Dates will be of our choice, but all the coins are in Very Good-Fine condition. You have George V on one side and the arms of Australia on the other side with a kangaroo and an emu. Nice coins not all that easy to find...

Australia, 1954 Florin Extremely Fine

After Australia went over to the decimal system, their pre-decimal was complete and finished. During the period 1910-1963 they issued only four commemorative coins and they were all florins. We can offer you the last of the four coins issued. This fourth and last of the Australian commemorative Florins was struck for the Royal visit of the new Queen, Queen Elizabeth II. As with the 1951 issue this coin was struck in .500 silver, offered here in Extremely Fine.
