George VI, Silver Threepence Fine, 1941
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.
