George V Last Type Design
In 1930, the portrait on George V coins was changed again, sometimes to an intermediate (modified) effigy, largely because of production problems. On most denominations, this was changed again by 1930, to the final, fourth coinage designs. The florin skipped the "modified" head type, and went straight to the fourth coinage, last head, type.
The edge is milled.
Last portrait of King George VI with the engraver's initials B.M. in raised letters on the neck truncation.
The obverse inscription reads:
GEORGIUS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX
Four cruciform shields bearing three lions passant for England, lion rampant for Scotland, and harp for Ireland, alternating with a pair of crossed diadems, each surmounted by an crowned cross. In the centre is a letter G for George. The value "two shillings" does not appear, only the inscription "One Florin"
The reverse legend reads:
FID DEF IND IMP 1932 ONE FLORIN
