Does Anyone Remember...

...real money? On the right here, opposite a "new" penny, this is a very old something.

Does anyone even know?? Come on you numismatic freaks...!

There will be a clue tomorrow...

Looks like a florin to me. Is it pre 1947? If it is, there's real silver in it. I used to work in a bank and I used to buy the pre 47 silver (this was the early 70's)from my till and sell it to an antique dealer, I used to double my money. Perfectly illegal!

Hi Chana...they did that to our one pound notes... :((

Anji, you're a gem! It's wrong but I haven't heard the word FLORIN for ages!! In Liverpool we used to say, "two-bob bit"!

So, it is not a florin...
