George VI, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1947

In 1947 for the first time, the Royal Mint issued coins without any silver in them. The legend would only last 2 years and then it would have to be changed, but the metal content would stay the same. We have high grade examples of this first cupro-nickel Sixpence, but supplies are very limited. This coin comes in 'Uncirculated' condition.

Picture of George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948

George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948

Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend. The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series. The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.
