George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1937-48 BU

By the 1930s, the commonly used pennies were rather unpopular with businesses, silver Threepence was also unpopular. So a new coin was introduced - a larger brass version of the three pence coin. The new brass Threepence was Britain’s first twelve-sided coin, which proved very popular and its design inspired the new £1 coin in 2017. Here we present the 1937-48 Threepence in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

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.

Edward VII, Penny 1902 Very Good

King Edward VII was the son of Queen Victoria and because she ruled for so long, his rule was rather short. In fact, the coins of Edward VII were only issued from 1902 to 1910, but that also means that all of his coins are over 100 years old. All coins are in Very Good condition with the details and the date clearly legible. Offered here is the 1902 penny. You have the bare head of the King on one side and a beautiful seated Britannia on the other side.
