1936 Threepence (Silver .500) Circulated_obv

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.

Picture of George V, Sixpence (Year of Three Kings) 1936 Fine

George V, Sixpence (Year of Three Kings) 1936 Fine

These 1936 silver sixpences have the portrait of King George V on them, but they have a far more interesting history. King George V died and his son became King Edward VIII and most of these Sixpences were struck during the reign of King Edward VIII. In December of that year Edward abdicated and his brother became King George VI. While the portrait is that of King George V who knows who was actually on the throne when they were struck. It is an interesting conundrum which will never be figured out.
