George VI, Brass Threepence, 1944

These 1944 Brass threepences weren’t struck at the Royal Mint on Tower Hill, but instead at a temporary site set up by the mint in a workshop at Pinewood Film Studios in Buckinghamshire. The threat from the Luftwaffe was enough to convince the Mint to set up this subsidiary mint outside the city. This proved to be a wise decision as the main Mint was hit by ‘several high-explosive bombs, four anti-aircraft shells, and many incendiary bombs’. We have on off er a group of these 1944 brass threepences, struck solely at Pinewood Studios and in stunning Uncirculated condition. They’re also available in circulated condition for £4.95. That’s a big saving on the £12.50 that the Royal Mint are charging! This threepence, struck at Pinewood would make an excellent addition to your 1944 set, or maybe you just want to treat a relative (or yourself!) to an 80th birthday gift.

Picture of Isle of Man, Winston Churchill 100th Birthday

Isle of Man, Winston Churchill 100th Birthday

In 1974 the Isle of Man issued a One Crown, crownsized coin for the Centenary of Churchill 1874-1974. It has H. M. the Queen on the obverse. It is a much better designed and struck than our own Royal Mint Churchill crown. But there was a whole heck of lot less Isle of Man Churchill crowns struck than Royal Mint crowns. They were struck in cupro-nickel by our own Pobjoy Mint and are denominated as ‘One Crown’. It is a coin that we have not had for quite a long time and even now we have only 75 coins in stock. Get while you can, especially if you are a Churchill collector.
