Victoria_Gothic_Florin_Obv

Victoria, Gothic Florin Very Good

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.

They are struck in copper and now are over 173 years old. But the most interesting thing is their high quality.

A nice type coin and the Halfpenny is much more difficult to get than the Penny, especially in such nice condition.

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Crown Very Good/Fine, 1889

Victoria, Jubilee Crown Very Good/Fine, 1889

This Sterling Silver Crown of Queen Victoria still had the Jubilee Head of Victoria on it. It was also the largest silver coin issued at the time. Robert Cecil, Marquis of Salisbury was our Prime Minister. Birmingham had been granted status as a city and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds was founded. Preston North End won the FA Cup and Charlie Chaplin was born. This Crown or 5 Shilling piece was a considerable amount of money at the time, it was Sterling Silver and our largest non gold coin. Victoria is on one side with her hair done up in a bun for the Jubilee and the reverse had St. George slaying the dragon. 1889 is not the easiest date to find of the series and all the coins on offer are in Very Good/Fine condition. Which considering they are now 128 years old is quite fantastic.

We have Fine examples of the largest Silver coin issued at the time, the Crown or Five Shilling piece. Normally they come in Very Good condition, our examples are in Fine quality, which will please most collectors.

Picture of Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Extremely Fine

Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin 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.

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887.

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 Fine, they are nice collectable examples.

Victoria, Jubilee Head Halfcrown VG, 1887-1892

In 1887 Queen Victoria finally allowed her portrait on the coinage to be changed. It was 50 years that she kept her Young Head portrait on the coins. The Halfcrown or Two Shillings and Sixpence was perhaps the most used large silver coin at the time. Because of course, a Halfcrown was a lot of money then. You have the Queen on the obverse with that silly little crown placed on her head. She hated it because it looked like a toy rather than the real thing. The reverse has a crowned coat of arms within a garter of roses. These Halfcrowns are struck in Sterling Silver and we have them in two grades. Dates will be of our choice, but they were only made from 1887-1892.
