George V, Silver Threepence Fine, 1931

In 1931 the British Pound came off the Gold Standard, Abbey Road Studios was opened and work on RMS Queen Mary was started. The depression was hitting and the Government cut wages for their workers and reduced benefits for everyone. The smallest and still quite useful and valuable silver coin that was issued for circulation was the Threepence also known as the Joey. The design this year had three acorns on the reverse tied to three oak springs. The coins were struck under King George V and minted in 500 fine silver. The coins on offer are in Fine condition and a nice souvenir of a much harder time.

Gloves for handling

Our friends at Lighthouse have designed a glove especially for handling coins. In between the ridges and valleys of your fingerprints there are acids. If these come into contact with the surface of the coins, this can leave your fingerprint indelibly etched into the surface of the coin. The real problem is that it can take years for this ‘fingerprint’ to appear. They have designed lightweight cotton gloves that are easy to wear and still protect your coins from damage due to handling.
