Comments

This NCLT Fine Silver (.999) NCLT coin was released as part of the 1998 Masterpieces of Silver set ("Coins of the 20th Century ") which contained eight twenty-cent/florin sized coins and a pre-decimal crown.



The reverse of this stunning coin is a replica of the original 1910 Silver Florin, however the obverse has the 1998 Ian Rank-Broadley fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth the Second.
