Great Britain 2 Shillings (Florin)  1937 to 1951
Great Britain 2 Shillings (Florin) 1937 to 1951

Hi Aubrey -- These are modern coins and are not worth very much. A collector may pay a few US dollars to add an uncirculated specimen to his or her collection. After 1946 the coins are made of copper nickel, so they do not even carry silver value. Before then, coins dated 1937 to 1946, these were made in 50 percent silver and contain 0.182 troy ounces of the precious metal.

TWO SHILLINGS DATED 1937 TO 1946
worn: BV
average circulated: BV + $1 US dollar
well preserved: BV + $3
fully uncirculated: BV + $4

Look up the current price per troy ounce at kitco.com and multiply by 0.182 to find the base value (BV) for the coin. If, for instance, silver is trading for $15 US dollars per troy ounce, BV = 0.182 x 15 = $2.70.

TWO SHILLINGS AFTER 1946
worn: less than $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
average circulated: $1
well preserved: $2
fully uncirculated: $4

Coin: 5993 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
