The short-lived UK double florin was minted

between 1887 and 1890, however was

discontinued due to confusion with the

similarly sized crown.

(thus the nickname "barmaid's grief"

or "barmaid's ruin")


Both obverse and reverse designs are almost

identical to those of the smaller florin.


48 pennies = 4 shillings = 2 florins

= double florin = 1/5 of a pound

  

The United Kingdom double florin obverse

features the robed jubilee bust of the mature

Queen Victoria, facing left, adorned with

jewellery, veil, and a small crown.


The reverse shows four crowned shields in cruciform,

each with coats of arms representing UK union

members: (England, Scotland, and Ireland).

Four sceptres are between the shields in the diagonals,

and a legend surrounds the main design, with the

date above.
