1938 Silver 3d

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.

1941 Silver 3d Fine

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.

George VI, 1945 Silver Florin Gem Unc

1945 was the next to last year that our coinage was struck in silver, the penultimate year. The Florin is the second largest denomination struck and as most collectors know, the most difficult denomination to get. King George VI was on the throne, by the way a Florin was two shillings, today it is 10 pence. The coins on offer are not only struck in Silver but they are in Gem Uncirculated condition, you just cannot get any higher grade then Gem. Supplies are of course very limited, but think what a fantastic type coin these will make.

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.

George VI Shilling Scottish 1944 Choice Uncirculated

1944 was near the end of the time that the Royal Mint would strike coins in silver, in fact there were only two years left. At that time they issued Shillings with either a Scottish or an English reverse. The Scottish coins had lower mintages and therefore are scarcer. We have a very small group in high grades, but as supplies are limited, we suggest you get in as soon as you can. This coin is offered in Choice Uncirculated condition.
