1887 Victoria Jubilee Double Florin

In 1887, for Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee, the Royal Mint issued new coins with the Jubilee Head of Victoria, but they also issued a new denomination, the Double Florin. The only problem is that the Double Florin (4 Shillings) looked very similar to the Crown (5 Shillings). It got the nickname of the Bar Maids Ruin, as late at night after a few complimentary drinks, the bar maid would often give change for a Crown when in fact she was given a Double Florin. This denomination proved unpopular and it was discontinued in 1890.
This one is in Extremely Fine condition and it shoes lovely detail; This is a high grade for the issue and much more difficult to get than many people realise. Catalogues at £195.
