  • Australian Florin Coin Australian Florin Coin

    Australian Florin Coin
    The Australian florin coin was used in Australia before decimalisation in 1966.

    First minted in 1910 from 92.5‰ silver and 7.5‰ copper, it was the same size and weight (11.31 grams) as the United Kingdom florin. From 1946 to 1963, the composition was changed to 50‰ silver but with the same overall weight.

    One florin was equivalent in value to two shillings (24 pence or one-tenth of a pound). In 1966, upon conversion to decimal currency, the florin was worth (Australian) 20 cents.

    The coin was minted until 1963, with some years omitted as follows: 1920, 1929–30, 1937, 1948–50, 1955, and none after 1963.
    The Coinwatch Florin – Genuine or Commemorative
    A genuine florin coin is featured as the dial face on each Coinwatch product and available for years from 1910* through to 1963.

    Those issued between 1910 and 1936 have a seven-pointed star above the coat of arms, and the Southern Cross constellation within the shield. Those issued between 1938 and 1963, inclusive, have the royal crown above, the six states represented in the shield and a golden wattle plant as a background.

    During World War II, between 1942–1944, florin production was supplemented by coinage produced at the San Francisco branch of the United States Mint. These coins bear a small “S” mint mark below the Australian coat of arms.

    The coat of arms design shows a shield representing each Australian state with a kangaroo and emu, chosen because neither animal can walk backwards supporting the slogan ‘Advance Australia’.

    The florin was not minted in 1929, 1930, 1937, 1939, 1948, 1949, 1950 and 1955. For all florin Coinwatch watches, a Commemorative dial is featured in these years and from 1964 to the present.

    Coinwatch
    The Coinwatch brand was founded in Australia in 1984.

    The foundation of all Coinwatch timepieces is the combination of quality Swiss-made watch movements with historic (and commemorative) coins. The endorsement of national mints around the world has ensured that Coinwatch can continue to supply unique timepieces that have come to represent and remind the wearer of an important year, a landmark historical event, or of a personal achievement or milestone in their life.

    Coinwatch watches, fob watches, and pendants have become extremely popular as gifts to mark milestone birthdays, anniversaries, and work tenure or retirement.

    These watch creations are all produced by professional watchmakers ensuring reliable, stylish timekeeping for both casual and formal occasions. The watch range reflects many tastes and eras, and wherever possible, if a genuine coin is not available for manufacture (due to scarcity or non-minting), a carefully-crafted commemorative coin alternative is offered as an alternative.

    Ladies Coin Watches
    We’ve found some great watch designs and incorporated coin faces with a Swiss analogue watch movement.

    Increasingly, women are wearing watch styles traditionally designed for men. The watch faces are larger and the band or strap wider and sturdier. We invite you to also browse our mens coin watch collections if you are after a more ‘rugged’, yet similarly stylish look.

    Our ladies watches (by the traditional definition), are finer in detail, and generally will only allow for the inclusion of the smaller coins – the florin or sixpence.

  • Men's Coin Watches

    Mens’ Coin Watches
    Our range of mens’ coin watches are stylish, yet range from casual/work designs through to formal occasion wear. We’ve incorporated some great watch designs for men and incorporated coin faces with a Swiss analogue watch movement.

    Our favourite is the Australian kangaroo penny. It is quintesentially Australian, and makes the perfect gift for a man (or woman) of any age.
