1903 Florin, Silver Two Shillings British | British Florin, Two Shillings 1903

1903 King Edward VII Silver Florin, Two Shillings Coin British.

1903, King Edward VII Silver Florin, bare head bust, Britannia standing on ship’s bow, Spink 3981, ESC 921 – SCARCE, CC Ref # EMFL-187, EF

The florin of Edward VII has a striking design showing Britannia standing on the bow of a ship. Most of this series are difficult in Uncirculated condition, and the date is so proud that worn coins often have it completely eroded.

The British two shilling coin, also known as the florin or "two bob bit", was issued from 1849 until 1967. It was worth one tenth of a pound, or twenty-four old pence. It should not be confused with the medieval gold florin, which was nominally worth six shillings.

In 1968, in the run-up to decimalization, the two shilling coin was superseded by the decimal ten pence coin, which had the same value and initially the same size and weight. It continued in circulation, alongside the ten pence coin, until 1993, when the 10p was reduced in size.
