George VI, Threepence (Silver) 1941 Fine

The Silver Threepence was last struck for circulation in 1944. These coins were replaced with the brass threepence as soon as World War II was over. From about 1940 until 1944 the Silver Threepence was struck here, but most of them were shipped to the West Indies. So the coins you see have actually been used as money and are in circulated condition. This group comes from a hoard put away more than 50 years ago. The dealer went to the West Indies and bought all the Silver Threepences that were around at the time. We got a nice group of the 1941 issue, close to the end of them making them. The coins on offer are in Fine condition, circulated but real original wear and usage. They are not an easy date to get and missing from many collections. When you show it to your friends, there certainly is an interesting story to tell about them.

George VI, Threepence (Brass) 1948 Fine

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.
