Victoria, Crown Very Good, 1890

The Jubilee Head Crown for Queen Victoria was issued from 1887-1892. Not surprisingly, the more difficult dates to get are the later dates. As everyone saved the first few and then because they were a lot of money, they forgot to save the rest. We are offering all the dates from 1889-1892 in Very Good or better condition. All the Sterling Silver Crowns are in at least Very Good condition. On offer here is the 1890 crown.

Victoria Double Florin Very Fine

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 Barmaids Ruin, as later at night after a few complimentary drinks, the barmaid 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 realize. Get them while you can, it has taken us a year to accumulate this small quantity.
