British West Africa 1/10th Penny 1939 Unc

The smallest coin issued by British West Africa under Kings George V and George VI is the 1/10th Penny. It is about the size of the old sixpence, struck in cupro-nickel and with a hole in the middle. The hole was so the locals could carry the coins on a string as they didn’t have pockets. Uncirculated condition and generally difficult to find.

Picture of George VI, Silver Threepence Fine, 1941

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.

United States of America, Silver Mercury Dime 1930s

One of our most popular American coins is the Mercury Dime, but usually we only have them from the 1940’s or War Time. We bought a large group of these 900 fine Silver coins in and they have been sorted by date. We have come up with a much smaller group of coins dated in the 1930’s, from 1930-1939. Why are they more difficult to get? Because the 1930’s was the time of the Great Depression and money was far more important and could buy a heck of a lot more in those days. The coins have a portrait of the god Mercury on one side and a fasces on the other side. All coins will be in Fine condition and dates and mint marks will be of our choice. But the more you order the more different dates and mint marks we will try and give you.
