1887 Queen Victoria Double Florin
This unusual coin is one of the most beautiful pieces of Victorian silver, and can be tricky to source in good condition. The double florin was very short lived. The coin was only minted between 1887-1890. Our Double Florin is graded as Extremely Fine. The coin shows slight toning which adds to its beauty. The newly introduced design of the 1887 jubilee bust has great detail with the Roman I in the date. The Roman I was later corrected and replaced by the Arabic 1, which adds to its rare collectibility.
This example has the obverse depicting the jubilee bust and reverse depicts the crowned cruciform shields with 2 sceptres at angles. The talented Joseph Boeham designed the obverse. The reverse was designed by Leonard Charles Wyon.
