1890 Victoria Double Florin

1890 Victoria Double Florin Obverse
£125.00
About Uncirculated 1890 Victoria Double Florin. British Double Florins were only issued for three years between 1887 and 1890, their similarity in size to the Crown causing then to be intentionally or unintentionally confused. They’re sometimes known as ‘Barmaids Grief’ or ‘Barmaids Ruin’. Obverse: divisive ‘Jubilee Head’ - a crowned bust of Victoria, facing left by Joseph Edgar Boehm. His initials appear on the Queen’s shoulder. Legend around reads: ‘VICTORIA DEI GRATIA’, divided by her tiny crown. Reverse: crowned cruciform shields of arms representing England, Scotland and Ireland with a Garter Star in the centre from which extends sceptres which terminate in national symbols and fill the angles between the shields. The date - 1890 - is divided by a crown, as is the legend which reads: ‘FID: | DEF: | BRITT: | REG:’. Artist: Leonard Charles Wyon. This coin weighs 22.62 grams and has a diameter of 36 millimetres. Grade: A UNC - Some colour toning and original lustre between legends, minor hairlines: otherwise Uncirculated or near so. Spink 3923.
