The Kruger Gray reverse design continued into this type right until
the introduction of decimal currency with the conclusion
of the florin series in 1963. This type features a slightly reworded obverselegend, ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA F:D
('Elizabeth II, by the grace of god, queen, defender of the faith'), due to public outcry that the previous type omitted
FIDEI DEF ('defender of the faith'). All dates in the series are easy to acquire in mint
state, though the 1956, 1959, and 1963 florins are quite scarce in the upper mint state
grades; the 1956 usually has a price to match. Most other dates are reasonable easy to acquire at or above MS63 with mint
rolls being found of all years from 1958 to 1963, and a few 1957 rolls.
