The two-shilling coin, also known as a ‘florin’, was issued from 1849 until 1967 before the introduction of decimalisation in the United Kingdom. 

This florin was struck during the short reign of Edward VII, who was king from 1901 to 1910. The eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Edward VII was a popular and successful monarch who ruled during the golden age of the British Empire.
