Edward VII, Silver Threepence

We just bought a large collection of King Edward VII Silver Threepences, the smallest silver coin issued by this Monarch for general usage. We have not checked the dates, but they were issued from 1902-1910. They were stuck in Sterling Silver and are well over 100 years old. We are not going to be sorting them, but just taking them out of the sack as they come. They are in Very Good or better condition and we know they are not easy to get. Everything before King George V is difficult to find, maybe it is because they are so old and struck in Sterling Silver. We offer individual coins here - if you order more than one you will get different dates: we won’t guarantee which dates you will get, but that they will be different. Great coins, the King only had coins for ten years and they are all over 100 years old…

Picture of George V, Sixpence circulated, 1926

George V, Sixpence circulated, 1926

In 1926 a Princess, now Queen Elizabeth II was born. Her grandfather King George V was on the throne at the time. The Sixpence was still being struck in silver. John Logie Baird demonstrated TV and the country had a terrible General Strike. For some reason the coins of 1926 are not easy to get. So we were very happy when we were offered a small group of the 1926 Silver Sixpence, a most useful and collected denomination. The coins are used, but in selected circulated condition. Honour our great Monarch, add a silver sixpence of her birth year to your collection. After all Queen Elizabeth II is the longest serving Monarch that this great nation has ever had.

Picture of Russia, wire money, Silver 1689-1725

Russia, wire money, Silver 1689-1725

These Russian Silver coins of Peter the Great were actually made by rolling out a thin wire of silver and then hammering out the design on them by hand. The value was standardized by the Reform Act of 1535. You have a horseman on the reverse and a legend in old Russian on the reverse. They are tiny silver coins with the denomination of Polushka and they were literally made from a piece of silver wire. They date from about 1700 and are a most unusual coin to have in your collection. Hundreds of years old and something your friends would probably never seen before. An actual coin struck from a piece of wire although it is silver wire
