Here we present a small group of the 1944 King George VI Silver Sixpence on offer. We can offer the World War II 1944 Silver Sixpence in Choice Uncirculated or Gem Uncirculated condition. In either case they are fantastic coins to see and own. But don't forget that supplies are limited.
This coin was struck the year before the last silver Sixpence ever was struck, so the 1945 Sixpence is the Penultimate Silver Sixpence. It was issued under King George VI and just after the end of World War II. There is something about a coin struck in silver, they just look and feel great. These coins were put away in 1945 and therefore are in outstanding condition. We have them in the two highest grades you can get; this particular one is the Choice Uncirculated variant. We know you will love them.
In 1947 the Royal Mint removed silver from circulating coinage. So the 1946 dated coins were the last ones to be struck using silver.

The coins on offer are some of the finest you can find, here in Gem Uncirculated. A great opportunity to add the last ever silver sixpence to your collection in wonderful condition…
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.

The brass threepence was first issued under King George VI and there are a number of difficult or Scarce dates. 1950 is one of those. It was issued after the end of World War II and towards the end of the King’s reign. The coins are in Fine condition and if you know someone born in 1950 this coin would make an excellent gift. The bare head of the King on one side and the thrift plant on the other side.
The Silver Threepence was last struck for circulation in 1944. These coins were replaced with the brass threepence as soon as World War II was over. From about 1940 until 1944 the Silver Threepence was struck here, but most of them were shipped to the West Indies. So the coins you see have actually been used as money and are in circulated condition. This group comes from a hoard put away more than 50 years ago. The dealer went to the West Indies and bought all the Silver Threepences that were around at the time. We got a nice group of the 1941 issue, close to the end of them making them. The coins on offer are in Fine condition, circulated but real original wear and usage. They are not an easy date to get and missing from many collections. When you show it to your friends, there certainly is an interesting story to tell about them.

It has taken some time to put this group together, many of the coins while struck in this country, were shipped overseas to help with a shortage of small coins.
