Victoria, Double Florin Very Good

The Double Florin or Bar Maid’s Ruin as it was known was only struck from 1887 until 1890. By then they decided that the denomination was causing more trouble than it was solving and they ceased making it. A Double Florin was four Shillings almost crownsized and struck in Sterling Silver. It was issued as part of the new Jubilee Head issue to celebrate Queen Victoria’s 50th year as our Queen. They were well and truly used and we are offering them in Very Good condition. They are dated between 1887-1890.

Edward VII, Halfcrown Very Good

Edward VII had a very short reign, 1901-1910, because his Mother, Queen Victoria, lived so long. Much of his coinage is difficult to get and in some cases rather expensive. All of his silver coins were struck in Sterling Silver and a crown was only issued in 1902 for his Coronation. So we offer the Sterling Silver Halfcrown, the largest denomination silver coin stuck for regular usage. It has the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful crowned shield on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but no rare dates are included. Available here in Very Good condition.
