George V, Threepence Sterling Silver, 1914

This George V Sterling Silver threepence was issued in 1914 just at the start of World War One. Later, in 1920, they reduced the fineness of the silver used in our coinage from 925 (Sterling) to 500 fine or half silver. This little ‘Joey’ as the threepence was known was the smallest silver coin issued at the time for circulation. The coins have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned ‘3’ on the other side. The coins are in Fine condition and are now 104 years old.

Victoria, Wreath Sixpence Gem Uncirculated, 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 sixpence featuring wreath in gem uncirculated grade.

George V, Silver Threepence Fine, 1931

In 1931 the British Pound came off the Gold Standard, Abbey Road Studios was opened and work on RMS Queen Mary was started. The depression was hitting and the Government cut wages for their workers and reduced benefits for everyone. The smallest and still quite useful and valuable silver coin that was issued for circulation was the Threepence also known as the Joey. The design this year had three acorns on the reverse tied to three oak springs. The coins were struck under King George V and minted in 500 fine silver. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and a nice souvenir of a much harder time.
