- A vintage British Florin/Two Shilling coin made into a beautiful ring. This unique coin jewellery is dated 1957, a perfect 60th birthday gift for someone turning 60 this year. This ring comes in four sizes: Medium (UK T /US 9.75), Large (UK V /US 10.75), and Extra Large (UK W /US 11.25). If you would like to order a bespoke date or size, please order our personalised florin coin ring. The British two shilling coin, also known as the florin or "two bob bit", was issued from 1849 until 1967. It was worth one tenth of a pound, or twenty-four old pence. It should not be confused with the medieval gold florin, which was nominally worth six shillings. In 1968, in the run-up to decimalization, the two shilling coin was superseded by the decimal ten pence coin, which had the same value and initially the same size and weight. It continued in circulation, alongside the ten pence coin, until 1993, when the 10p was reduced in size.
