Victorian shillings and Florins are made from .925 Sterling silver, they stopped using sterling silver in 1919. From 1920 until 1947 the silver content was reduced to 50% the rest being mainly copper. From 1948 until 1968 they were made from Cupro-Nickel. After 1973 all decimal coins are made from pressed steel.
One shilling and Two Shillings /Florins make very nice Coin Rings and can still be acquired at reasonable prices, obviously the finer the detail the more the coin will cost, but is important to have a nicely detailed coin to make a good Coin Ring.
It should be pointed out that anyone with a nickel allergy should avoid coins made between 1947 to 1973.
The new Decimal 5 Pence and 10 Pence coins can be used to make Coin Ring’s, but a lack of design on these coins makes for a fairly plain Coin Ring.
