1926 George V British Silver Florin, Two Shillings 

Type 2: .500 Fine silver

George V

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In 1968, in the run-up to decimalization, the two shilling coin was superseded by the decimal ten pence coin, which had the same value and initially the same size and weight.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.

Modern Shillings, Florins, Crowns after 1920 - Even though these coins are large, and even though most of them are made of silver, they do not command strong premiums over and above their innate silver value. There are twelve pence in a shilling. Two shillings is called a florin. Double florins are four shillings. A crown is five shillings, and half crown is therefore two and one-half shillings.
