The 1939 Florin is the key date of the George VI Florin series coming from a relatively low
of 630,000 coins. While the year is often well struck up, the obverse
surfaces are prone to hairlines and scuffs which make mint-state
coins rare, and higher mint state graded coins near impossible to
source. In circulated grades, they are reasonably easy to obtain in all grades up to the mid-AU level although they already
start to command strong premiums at the XF-AU levels. Collectors would do well to represent this date in their collections
with a low-end mint state example which can be sourced with a little
effort and with the typically good strikes, should be able to fit well in a high-grade collection of florins.
