Lot 48 – Sterling Silver 1888 Double Florin

Sterling Silver 1888 Double Florin – 4 shillings back in the day. Very close in size to a crown (5 shillings) – did earn a nickname – ‘barmaids grief’ due to the size as it got confused. Only issues between 1887 – 1890. donated by Nicholas John Hughes-Browne

Lot 49 – A Roman Antoninianius Coin

A Roman Antoninianius Coin- this coin type varied in value over the years depending upon silver content – the further through time you got in the Roman Empire the less silver content they have.

Item 50 – Medieval Hammered Coin

Hammered coins are not my forte normally unless they are Tudor onwards so I’m a little rusty on identification. Most medieval pennies have the name ‘Edward on them. I’d probably sell this as a medieval hammered coin BUT for what it’s worth I think this is an Edward I issue coin – denomination is a penny (most coins of this age are pennies) – if you needed change you cut the coin in two for a half penny or four for a farthing.
