A chance buy 15 from a completely blurred selling pic. but I had previously bought from this guy so when he said its F-GF I think money well spent. Just lately the popularity in gothic florins has hit new heights even VG examples are trading 30+ and more for the elusive dates. Here is a nice honest unlisted variety 1859 .925 silver example of the(2,500,000)est coins struck for that year. Variety type C/higher C in date

Are non-official enamelled coins considered blasphemy?
Don't want to post something that will get me removed from polite society..

Upinsmoke - great pair of coins, what lustre!



Zookeeperz, love your Gothic Florin (My favourite of all the Florins and nice example with your investigation of the letters.

Gainn - I am not a fan of enamelled pieces, but no law against showing them, enamelling coins was quite popular in the late Victorian and Edwardian eras and the over elaborate designs of that era were perfect for enamelling.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I have a few that are enamelled but this is by far my favourite.

I know they're not to everyone's taste, but I appreciate the effort and skill involved.
And probably better to be treasured than melted.

That enamelled Florin is gorgeous and the colours really set it off.

Usually cataloged under Ireland rather than the UK - a case can be made for posting it here too as it shows James II.

It's a half crown (XXX pence) from May 1690.

Beautiful, I love gun money and a halfcrown is definitely a nice piece to have. Quite a late date too. I heard all the gun money was devalued at 1/12th its original value after the war in 1691.
