Florin, solid-gold coin introduced in Florence, Italy, in 1252 and made until the early 1500s. Florins have a lily, symbol of Florence, on one side and an image of Saint John the Baptist, patron saint of Florence, on the other. Britain, one of many countries to produce versions of the coin, first introduced a silver florin in 1849.
