George V, Threepence 1935 About Unc

In 1935 King George V reached his Silver Jubilee (1910-1935), a feat that not all that many of our Monarchs had or would reach. The smallest silver coin issued for circulation at that time was the Threepence or Joey. We have a nice group of these Silver Jubilee Silver Threepences on offer, but supplies are limited. Here we offer them in Uncirculated condition. The coins are struck in 500 fine Silver and the year after 1935, was when King George V died, causing great problems with Royal succession.

George V, Threepence (Silver) 1931 Fine

In 1931 the British Pound came off the Gold Standard, Abbey Road Studios was opened and work on RMS Queen Mary was started. The depression was hitting and the Government cut wages for their workers and reduced benefits for everyone. The smallest and still quite useful and valuable silver coin that was issued for circulation was the Threepence also known as the Joey. The design this year had three acorns on the reverse tied to three oak springs. The coins were struck under King George V and minted in 500 fine silver. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and a nice souvenir of a much harder time.

George V, Threepence (.500 Silver) 1933 Fine

It was the height of the Depression and Roosevelt had called a ‘Bank Holiday’ and closed all the banks. He later declared it illegal for American citizens to own gold coins. The United States and the world were in a terrible state. Yet under King George V, this country still issued the Threepence in Silver. They were 500 fine Silver and the smallest coin struck in silver in this country. To make people happy the film King Kong came out that same year. The 1933 Silver Threepences we have on offer are in Fine condition and are now 85 years old. If for nothing else, it reminds you that governments will try to forbid their citizens to own gold coins, but not at Coincraft!
