George VI, Threepence Brass Circulated, 1951

The brass threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued in 1967. 1951 is one of the scarce dates of the George VI issue. Each coin is in selected circulated condition and is of course scarce and difficult to find. 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.

George VI, Threepence in Brass (Scarce) 1946 Circulated

The Brass Threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued for circulation in 1967. What we consider to be the Key date of the series is the King George VI 1946 issue. It has always been difficult to find in this country because, although struck by the Royal Mint, the coins were sent overseas for use in the Caribbean. We have recently purchased a nice group of these coins which grade in Fine condition.

Picture of Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1957

Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1957

This is a strange coin; when I moved to London in 1968 this coin cost more in real terms than it does now. Everyone was trying to put together a set of pre-decimal coins in uncirculated condition and this is one of the coins that caused a little bit of trouble. Everyone puts away the first year of a new design and especially if it is a Coronation year (1953). The second year less are put away and as time goes on fewer and fewer are put away, until it gets very difficult to find uncirculated examples of some dates. We bought a small group of 1957 Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences in uncirculated condition. Not a rare coin, but one that is difficult to find if you need one. They are very inexpensive at just £3.95; they actually cost more in 1968 than I am charging now.
