There are a number of stories behind the 1937 pattern strikes, some say that they depicted King Edward VIII before he eloped with divorcee Mrs Wallis Simpson (The coins of Edward VIII, 2011) , (Museum Victoria, 2011) which was later removed thus producing unifacepatterns , others say the patterns were produced as representation pieces in order to gain royal approval for the new designs, similar to the patterns of 1927. The latter would seem to be more plausible, given that patterns exist of only the denominations with new designs, and that 1937 double-sided patterns exist in other denominations. A total of 15 1937 unifacepattern florins are known but no double sided pattern florins are known to exist. It is unlikely that more than 4 or 5 examples are available to collectors with most being held in museums or other public collections. No examples were produced for circulation, it wasn't until 1938 when business strike florins were produced with the new designs. (Museum Victoria, 2011)
