Hello,
does anybody have information on the mintage of this coin. On the catalog I see just proof and matte proof versions but not "ordinary".
Thank you for the help

​Thanks. I have checked the Krause Catalogue as well. I do not know if it is missing or my coin has just lost its proof features

This photograph is taken from my 2003 Krause catalogue.
See you already have an answer from Derf, but this shows other dates, so added for interest.

Just found another reference to the mintage of the 1927 Florin.
This is the 1981 Coin Year Book. This states mintage as101,497. All in proof
I'm just a collector of coins, not a slave to it, unless I am in a coin shop.
For all you banknote collectors. Link to my swap list.

Do you think it is worth?

My usual answer would be, whatever you are prepared to accept for it.
It no longer looks proof, so it is difficult to say.
I expect a lot of collectors would like it, as it is still a rare date.
I do not have this date, not have I ever held one in my hand

EBay has a few at around £150.00 or higher for what is described as proof.
There is another at £44.00, which is under an auction, with over 4 days to go

Obviously, quite a rare coin.

Also found on eBay are 1927 restrikes, so go very careful

I saw the re-strikes as well. I am going to check with magnet and to see the weight and size...

It should weigh 11.28 grams and be 28.4mm in size (1.125 inches).
The coin is 50% silver, 40% copper and 5% each of nickel and zinc

Sad it is worn down to Fine condition, impaired proofs usually only go down to EF and rarely gVF.
This coin must have circulated despite its low mintage.

Then again the chance of it being a Chinese fake is always there.
I love coins, both old and precious and also change coins. If its round and shiny, it will garner my interest. I also collect stamps and have an abiding interest in History, Archaeology,  and Social Issues.  I also worship the musical god Prince.
