George VI 1941 Silver Threepence 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…
