    English shillings, 1/4 rupee

    Hi all, I was wondering if someone could tell me if any of these coins is silver. They were in a jar of funny money from when I was a kid. Long time ago. Thanks!

    Well, the 1/4 rupee is 0.500 silver. Still haven't found anything on the shillings.

    Yep, both your Florin (2 shillings) and Shilling coin are copper-nickel. British silver coins are 50% silver from 1920-1946 and sterling prior to 1920. Starting in 1947 silver was replaced by copper nickel in all circulating issues.
