ONE Florin 1871 - Georges III

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have find a new strange coin.

So, Is it a coin or a medal ? What is your view ?

Do you know her history ?

 

For me, I think that it is a coin.

It is dated 1871 around the Coinage Act 1870.

Georges III is on this coin in memory of his Coinage Act 1816.

Am I in right ? or have you another idea ?

This is what is known as a pattern issue, it was essentially a trial piece used to test a design - this cannot have been legal tender due to the mismatch between the date and when George III was king.

Nice piece & the ones on the linked site show the begins of the die-crack, which on yours is more developed, very special.
