1887 Double Florin (AUNC)


The 1887 Double Florin from the United Kingdom is a significant piece of Victorian-era numismatic history. 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 showcases a cruciform arrangement of shields bearing the national emblems of England, Scotland, and Ireland, surrounded by the Order of the Garter.


Graded as About Uncirculated (AUNC), this coin exhibits minimal wear with traces of mint luster remaining. It retains sharp details and clear inscriptions, highlighting its excellent preservation. Collectors appreciate its historical significance and well-preserved condition.
