1887 Double Florin (EF)


The 1887 Double Florin from the United Kingdom is a remarkable example of Victorian-era numismatic craftsmanship. Minted during the reign of Queen Victoria, this coin was introduced to simplify currency but was often confused with the slightly smaller crown due to its size. On the obverse, Queen Victoria is depicted wearing a crown and veil, symbolizing her as Empress of India. The reverse features a cruciform arrangement of shields bearing the national emblems of England, Scotland, and Ireland, encircled by the Order of the Garter.


Graded as Extremely Fine (EF), this coin exhibits sharp details with only minimal wear visible upon close inspection. It retains traces of mint luster and showcases well-defined inscriptions. Collectors value its exceptional preservation and historical significance.
