Victoria, Double Florin Extremely Fine, 1887

When Queen Victoria celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 1887, she not only allowed them to change her portrait but also to issue a new denomination. That was the Double Florin which was equivalent to Four Shillings. It was almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. Today we have an equivalent coin, but we call it a 20 Pence. Shows what time and inflation will do to money. The Double Florin was also known as the Bar Maids ruin. After she had had a few drinks, the bar maid would often give change for a Crown and not a Double Florin. That Shilling difference was a lot of money and came directly from the Bar Maids wages. This Double Florin was only made from 1887-1890. In the past we have offered the Queen Victoria Double Florin in Fine and even in Very Fine, now we can offer them in Extremely Fine condition. These are super coins and most are dated 1887, remember they are struck in Sterling Silver and they have the Jubilee Head portrait of the Queen.

United States of America, 2000 Sacagawea Dollar Coin in Proof

In 2000 the United States Mint issued a new dollar coin: this one depicted a young native American Shoshone woman, Sacagawea carrying her infant Jean Baptiste. This design was only used from 2000-2008 and after that they changed the reverse design every year. All the Sacagawea Dollars are struck in Proof golden coloured metal. They were still trying to find a substitute for the dollar bill. I think these coins are fantastic in Proof condition, unfortunately in Uncirculated they are just coins. Supplies are limited. This product is the 2000 issue of this fabulous dollar coin in proof condition.
