Great Britain Florin and Double Florin  1887 to 1892
Great Britain Florin and Double Florin 1887 to 1892

Virtually identical to each other, the British florin (2 shillings) and double florin of this period are big, bold silver coins highly sought by collectors. The florin is about 28 mm in diameter with 0.336 troy ounces of silver, and the double florin is 36 mm with 0.673 ounces. Here are some typical catalog values:

FLORIN
worn: $20 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $25
well preserved: $60
fully uncirculated: $150

DOUBLE FLORIN
worn: $30 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $40
well preserved: $80
fully uncirculated: $160

These are catalog values I am quoting. Be sure you understand how to interpret catalog values by visiting our Terminology page.
