George V, Real Silver Threepence

During the reign of King George V, there were two different types of silver coins issued for circulation. The real silver coins that were struck in Sterling Silver and the coins struck in half silver. The real silver coins were only struck from 1911-1919, the half silver coins were struck from 1920-1936. The smallest sterling silver coin issued for general use was the Threepence, also known as a Joey. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the value within a wreath on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. The coins are circulated, but in selected circulated condition and they all date from 1911 to 1919 only.

George V, Threepence (Silver) 1931 Fine

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.
