George III, Halfpenny, 1806/7 Very Good

The coinage of King George III is rather strange, it is broken up into two sections, before the Currency Reform Act and after the Currency Reform Act. This Act was passed because of the shortage of coins, which the King because of his illness refused to allow to be made. So what did they do, after the Currency Reform Act of 1816 they struck Silver coins but did not bother to strike copper coins…! So the last design of King George III Halfpennies was issued in 1806 and 1807. It has the King’s bust with lauriate wreath on one side and a seated Britannia on the other side. These are the last George III Halfpences ever to be struck and they were struck in copper. In Very Good condition, which means that they have seen considerable wear

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.

1967 Brass Threepence bag

Mini Bag of 10 of the Last Brass 3d

We bought some original bags of the last Brass Threepence dated 1967 and in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The only thing is that each bag contains 1,600 coins and most collectors don’t want that many of one coin. It's nice to give out gifts but there is some limit. Then we were shown some nice mini bags or perhaps you would call them pouches. Richard came up with the idea of putting 10 Brilliant Uncirculated 1967 Brass Threepences in one of the pouches and call it a mini bag of coins. The Brass Threepence is one of the most popular pre-decimal denominations, so it is a win-win situation. That way you get all you will need and you don’t have to buy a ‘door stop’ bag of coins to satisfy that desire.
