Victoria, Jubilee Head Florin Very Fine

Queen Victoria finally consented to a change of the design of her portrait on the coinage of the United Kingdom in 1887. For the previous 50 years, all of her coins had the Young Head portrait, showing the Queen when she was a 17-year-old girl. The Florin as a coin had only been in existence since 1849. 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 Very Fine, they are nice collectable examples.

Picture of George VI, English Shilling Choice Uncirculated, 1949

George VI, English Shilling Choice Uncirculated, 1949

It was in the reign of King George VI that all silver was removed from our coinage and replaced with what we use today, cupronickel. But what many collectors don’t realise is that the cupronickel coins of George VI in choice condition are much rarer to get than choice silver coins of George VI. We purchased a group of the 1949 English Shillings, put away in 1949 and are they super! We have classed them Choice Uncirculated, the worst coin is far superior to what you see on the market. The current catalogue price on this coin is £35.00 in just Uncirculated condition and all of these are much nicer than that. A chance to buy a Choice George VI 1949 English cupronickel Shilling at a price that will please you…

Picture of Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

Victoria, Gothic Florin Fair

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 1851 became MDCCCLI. 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.
