George VI, Scotland, Shilling Uncirculated, 1946

Starting in 1937 the Royal Mint issued two types of Shillings each year, one with an English reverse and one with a Scottish reverse. The Scottish one is always the more difficult to get, as the mintages were always much lower than the English version. We offer the last year that the Scottish Shilling was struck in silver, 1946, to you in an incredible grade. They make an excellent souvenir of when money was money and it was struck in Silver. Offered here in uncirculated condition. Supplies are limited and this is the last Scottish Shilling ever struck.

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.

George V, the last Sterling Silver Threepence, 1919

In 1919 the Royal Mint issued the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence for circulation. The next year, 1920, they reduced the silver content in our coins from 925 fine silver to 500 fine silver. King George V was on the Throne and World War I was just over, the economy needed the extra income from less silver in our coinage. We can offer the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence in Fine condition for just £8.50. It shows what inflation does to our money, today there is no silver in our coins just cupro-nickel and even the smallest coins are only copper plated steel.
