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. In worn condition they start at about $10 US dollars catalog value and get as high as $50 in well-preserved, but circulated, condition. A fully uncirculated coin catalogs near $100.
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.
