Picture of George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948

George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948

Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend. The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series. The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.

Elizabeth II, Scotland, Pair of Scottish Shillings BU, 1966

Most people think that the last pre-decimal coins struck for circulation were dated 1967, they would only be partly right. In fact most pre-decimal coins were last struck in 1967, that is except for the Shilling. The last Shilling struck for circulation was in 1966, they did not make any in 1967. They issued two different types of 1966 Shillings, the English reverse and the Scottish reverse. The coin on offer this issue is the Scottish 1966 Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. As the Shilling had a direct decimal equivalent they felt that they had enough of this denomination to fill all their needs at the time. We are offering you a pair (2 pieces) of the 1966 Scottish Shilling in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Why two pieces? So you can show the obverse and reverse at the same time
