The 1912 florins


Mint: London
Mint mark: None
Mintage: 1,292,130

166 rim denticles on reverse. Legend has flat-base lettering.

Two varieties of this coin were listed without identification by John Dean in "The 1965 Australian Coin Varieties Catalogue". I believe the varieties shown below are the ones JD listed.
