Picture of George VI,  Silver Threepence, 1938

George VI, Silver Threepence, 1938

In 1938 our Prime Minister Chamberlain met with Hitler, a lot good that did us. The Bren Light Machine Gun entered the British Army, now did us a lot of good. The Beano was first put on sale and that gave all of us a laugh. Our King was George VI, who had been on the throne for only about a year. The smallest silver coin struck for circulation was the Silver Threepence, even though at the same time a brass threepence was actually being struck as well. We can offer this George VI 1938 Silver Threepence in Fine condition and it is a date that is not all that easy to find.

George VI, Brass Threepence 1937-48 BU

By the 1930s, the commonly used pennies were rather unpopular with businesses, silver Threepence was also unpopular. So a new coin was introduced - a larger brass version of the three pence coin. The new brass Threepence was Britain’s first twelve-sided coin, which proved very popular and its design inspired the new £1 coin in 2017. Here we present the 1937-48 Threepence in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

George VI, Brass Threepence, 1948

Many of the King George VI dates of brass threepences are Scarce and difficult to find, as most of the mintage was sent to our colonies overseas. The 1948 Brass Threepence is no exception. I believe that most of them went to the West Indies; after all even during a war the population needs coins to spend. The brass threepence while a short series (1937-1967) is also one of our most popular series. The new pound coin is based on this coin. The 1948 brass threepences are in Fine condition and difficult to find, many date collectors are missing this coin.

Picture of George VI, Collection of World War II Silver Sixpences

George VI, Collection of World War II Silver Sixpences

World War II lasted from 1939-1945, during that period our coinage was still struck in 500 fine Silver. That was because cupro-nickel was of much more use to the War Effort than silver. The Sixpence or Tanner was one of our most loved coins, until decimalization took over. We are offering the complete date set of World War II Silver Sixpences, 1939-1945. You get 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, and 1945 Sixpences all struck in 500 fine Silver. They are in Fine condition and make an interesting display piece when you are talking about the War. Unless you are a certain age, you might never have seen a sixpence, let alone a silver one.

Picture of George VI, Cupronickel Florin Collection, 1947-1951

George VI, Cupronickel Florin Collection, 1947-1951

In 1947 the Royal Mint removed all Silver from our coinage and it was now to mbe struck in cupro-nickel. The 1947 and the 1948 issues had the normal legend on the coins, but in 1947 India became independent and so that in 1949 changed that legend. The Florin of King George VI issued in cupronickel was struck in 1947, 1948, 1949, 1950 and 1951. There were no coins struck for circulation in 1952 because that was the year that the King died. The next Florin to be issued was in 1953 for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. We offer the complete King George VI cupronickel Florin Collection for only £12.50. They come in a snap-lock plastic bag, ready to be added to your collection, all coins are in Fine condition and you get one coin of every date 1947-1951.
