Great Britain Florin 1911 to 1926
Let's see. In the old British monetary system there were 4 farthings in a pence, 12 pence in a shilling, and 2 shillings in a florin. The type of florin that you have was minted between 1911 and 1926, and all these coins are about equal in value regardless of date, roughly:
worn: $10 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $15
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $70
Each coin contains 0.336 troy ounces of silver, so they can never be worth less than that.
By the way, there were 5 shillings in a crown, 4 crowns in a pound (also known as a sovereign), and 21 shillings in a guinea.
