George V, Real Silver Threepence
During the reign of King George V, there were two different types of silver coins issued for circulation. The real silver coins that were struck in Sterling Silver and the coins struck in half silver. The real silver coins were only struck from 1911-1919, the half silver coins were struck from 1920-1936. The smallest sterling silver coin issued for general use was the Threepence, also known as a Joey. You have the bare head of the King on one side and the value within a wreath on the other side. Dates will be of our choice, but the more you order the more different dates we will try and give you. The coins are circulated, but in selected circulated condition and they all date from 1911 to 1919 only.
