Sixpence WWII Date Collection (Silver)

George VI, Sixpence WWII Date Collection (Silver)

In the reign of King George VI many different and important events happened. Without doubt, the most important event was World War II. For the first time, it really was a World War with fighting in Europe, in the Far East, in Africa, and in South America. At that time our coinage was still being struck in Silver, mainly because cupronickel was much more important to the war effort than Silver. We have put together complete date sets of the World War II Silver Sixpences as issued in this country. You get nice circulated examples of the King George VI Sixpence of 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945. Remember that the Silver Sixpence ceased to exist after 1946. You get the complete collection for just £45.50.

 1940  Threepence (Silver) Circulated

George VI, Threepence (Silver) 1940 Circulated

In 1937 a new brass Threepence coin was introduced by King George VI. But at the same time they continued to also make the threepence in silver. Here we offer the 1940 Silver Threppence in sellected circulated condition. Striking of the silver threepence halted in 1944, so some dates are very difficult to get. We will offer the 1942 and 1943 when we have enough in stock to supply the anticipated demand. But get this one while you can, after all, it is one of the final silver threepences made for everyday use. 1942-1945 were issued for use in the colonies and are much scarcer.

Picture of George VI, Threepence (Silver) 1941 Fine

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.

Picture of George VI, WWII Halfcrown Collection

George VI, WWII Halfcrown Collection

During World War II Silver was not that important for the War Effort, so they still struck our coins in Silver. The largest denomination struck at the time was the Halfcrown, Two Shillings and Sixpence. It was both the biggest and highest denomination struck during World War II. We have managed to put together complete date sets of the Silver George VI Halfcrown as issued in World War II. That means you'll get the 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 King George VI Silver Halfcrowns. We don’t believe that we have ever offered this collection before. The Halfcrown was a large and valuable coin at the time; name me any youngster who wouldn’t have been over the moon to own one. You are getting the opportunity to own all the dates 1939-1945 issued during World War II. The coins are in selected circulated condition.
