George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1952 Unc

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 1952 Threepence in Uncirculated condition.

In 1968 when the first decimal coins were issued they carried the denomination, ‘New Pence’ to differentiate them from the pre-decimal Pence or Penny coins. In 1982 the Mint felt that we had enough time to differentiate between the two Pence so they changed the denomination to Pence from New Pence. On most of the coins that was fine but there was one problem in the making. The Mint had decided that the lowly Half Pence was too low and value and would shortly stop making them. In fact in 1983 they did stop making them and in 1984 they only made the coins in the Mint and Proof Sets. So the 1982 Half Pence is the last coin that was actually struck for circulation. The Half Pence coin was only struck for three years and two of those coins are difficult to get and can be expensive. We bought an original bag of the 1982 Half Pence coins in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, it is scarcer than most people realise and priced rather reasonably. Get them while you can…
