1916 Australia Florin - King George V

This is a lovely example from this era.

The Obverse has six good pearls and light scratching.

The Reverse has some minor pock marking but overall the coin is fantastic condition.

The rim and denticles are both in a superior grade.

A high grade coin which would make for a magnificent date filler for any collection.
