British coin Double Florin

The Double Florin (4/-) was one of the shortest-lived British coin denominations ever, only being produced between 1887 and 1890. The silver coin weighed 22.6 grams and was 36 millimetres in diameter.

The obverse side of the coin shows a portrait of Queen Victoria wearing a veil, with the inscription VICTORIA DEI GRATIA, while the reverse shows four cruciform crowned shields bearing the emblems of England (x2), Scotland, and Ireland, with sceptres between the shields, in the style of Charles II's gold coins designed by John Roettier; the inscription on the reverse says FID DEF BRITT REG date.
