Edward VII, Patina Pattern Double Florin Copper

The first and only time that a Double Florin was issued for circulation was during the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. A Double Florin is somewhat smaller than a Crown containing four shillings rather than the five that a Crown contains. International Currency Bureau made up what an Edward VII Double Florin might have looked like, had one actually been made. These show the bare head of the King surrounded by a circle of dots. They only made 750 of this privately issued medallic pattern. They were struck in copper and goldine; here we are offering the copper variant. You have the bare head of King Edward VII on one side and four shields with sceptres in between. Each piece was struck in Proof condition and considering the quality and the low mintage, we think they are excellent value for the money.
