George VI Florin 1949 Choice Uncirculated

In 1947, the British Empire handed India back its Independence. This affected British coinage too, no longer did the legend of George VI’s coins contain the words “IND IMP” or Emperor of India. Coins omitting the IND IMP were only struck from 1949-1952, and the 1952 florin is Unique! We have a wonderful group of 1949 Florins available in wonderful Choice Uncirculated condition. A great addition to your collection, or maybe you know a special someone having their 75th birthday!

George VI, Florin 1942 Fine_obv

George VI, Florin 1942 Fine

In 1942 in the middle of World War II our coinage was still being struck in Silver. That was because cupronickel was more useful for the War effort than Silver. This continued on until just after the War when the last silver coins were struck in 1946. We offer the King George VI Florin of 1942, the Florin is of course the second largest denomination made and the most difficult denomination to get. All coins are struck in 500 fine Silver and are in Fine condition. A World War II Florin of 1942, well worth having for yourcollection.

George VI, Florin 1945 Choice Unc

In 1946 the Royal Mint stopped striking our coins in silver, so the 1945 issues are the penultimate silver coins to be struck. These King George VI 1945 Silver Florins are in Choice Uncirculated condition, just as nice as when they came out of the Royal Mint 78 years ago. As most collectors know, the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get, especially in the higher grades. And Choice Uncirculated is about as high a grade as you will find. These coins are Choice Uncirculated, which means a minimum number of bag marks. Treat yourself, the penultimate Silver Florin and in wonderful condition.

George VI, Florin 1947 About Unc

1947 was the first time ever the Royal Mint struck circulation coins in cupro-nickel and not silver. The most difficult denomination was the Florin. This new coinage only lasted for two years, as India got its independence, they had to change the legend in 1949. The coin on offer here is in About Uncirculated condition, which for a cupronickel coin that is now over 70 years old is very high indeed. Supplies are limited and the Florin is the most difficult denomination.

George VI, Florin Collection 1947-1951 Cupronickel

In 1947 the Royal Mint removed all Silver from our coinage and it was now to be struck in cupro-nickel. The 1947 and the 1948 issues had the normal legend on the coins, but in 1947 India became independent and so that in 1949 changed that legend. The Florin of King George VI issued in cupronickel was struck in 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950, and 1951. There were no coins struck for circulation in 1952 because that was the year that the King died. The next Florin to be issued was in 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. We offer the complete King George VI cupronickel Florin Collection for only £12.50. They come in a snap-lock plastic bag, ready to be added to your collection, all coins are in Fine condition and you get one coin of every date 1947-1951.

Victoria, Florin (Gothic)_obv

Victoria, Florin (Gothic)

The first British decimal coin was the Florin or Two Shillings which today is the 10p. First issued in 1849 and changed to the Gothic design in 1851 these florins were struck in Sterling Silver. You have a crowned portrait of Queen Victoria facing left on the obverse and four crowned coats of arms on the reverse. The strangest thing is that a large part of the population was illiterate, yet instead of putting the date in what is known today as Arabic numerals, they put the date in Roman numerals. So that a large part of the populace could not even read the date that was on the coin. As 1872 became (MDCCC) Ixxii. The coins on offer have seen considerable circulation, but don’t forget that even the most modern of the coins is today 132 years old. We have made sure that you can make out the date, even if only the last digits are clear. Available in different grades. Dates will be of our choice.

Victoria, Florin (Jubilee Head) Extremely Fine

In 1887 Queen Victoria allowed her portrait to be changed from the Young Head to the Jubilee Head portrait. The coins were struck in Sterling Silver and the most difficult denomination to find is the Florin. Don’t forget the Florin as a denomination only came into being in 1849. The coins on offer are in Extremely Fine condition, which is a very high grade and based on some of the prices I have seen being asked at coin fairs, are very expensive. Well our coins are not that highly priced, we have been building up our little inventory for a couple of years and they were bought right, so we are going to sell them right. But the Florin is the most difficult denomination to get, especially in Extremely Fine condition.
