5 Silver Threepences for Christmas Pudding

The Royal Mint Stopped making silver threepences for circulation in 1944, but the later dates are more difficult to find, as most were made for export. We have just bought a huge lot of King George V and King George VI Silver Threepences, 2,300 pieces to be exact. At Christmas, these are used as gifts and also to go into the Christmas pudding. the person who finds it gets a present. These are not separated either by type or date, when the order comes in, someone will just count them out and put them in an envelope. They make excellent holiday gifts. They are circulated but there are no dogs, we made sure of that. A great Christmas Gift!

Picture of George V, Threepence (Sterling Silver)

George V, Threepence (Sterling Silver)

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 .500) 1936 Circulated

1936 was a very unusual year for this country in that there were three Kings on the throne that year. King George V died and his son took over as King Edward VIII and when he abdicated his brother became King George VI. Most of the coins were struck under King Edward VIII but all the coins have the portrait of King George V on them. They are struck in 500 fine Silver and are the last Silver Threepences to have his portrait on them. A silver Threepence of 1936 in selected circulated condition, the year of three kings.

George V, Sixpence 1936 Choice Unc

We have just found in a small room a little lot of the 1936 British Silver Sixpences. They are in Choice Uncirculated condition and the date is rather special. In 1936 we had three different Kings, George V, Edward VIII, and of course George VI. While all the coins carry the portrait of King George V, they were actually struck while King Edward VIII was on the throne, he ruled for 10 months in 1936. These are the last George V coins and are in Choice Uncirculated condition. A very small and very nice group of this important 1936 silver sixpence…
