South Africa Florin 1923 to 1930
A florin is 2 shillings. For reasons unknown, South Africa changed the annotation on their florins to '2 shillings' in 1930. If you happen to have a 1930 coin labeled 'florin' instead of '2 shillings,' you have a very valuable coin. Only 14 such coins exist.
There are 0.291 troy ounces of silver in each coin.
For all the other dates, except 1925, here is how catalog values run:
FLORIN (all dates except 1925):
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $18
well preserved: $100
fully uncirculated: $300
florins dated 1923 are a tad more common; multiply these figures by 0.7
FLORIN DATED 1925:
worn: $100 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $300
well preserved: $1000
fully uncirculated: $2500
