George VI, Sixpence Choice Uncirculated, 1946

In 1947 the Royal Mint removed silver from circulating coinage. So the 1946 dated coins were the last ones to be struck using silver. We have found a small quantity of the King George VI sixpence dated 1946, which is the last silver sixpence ever issued for circulation. The coins on offer are some of the finest you can find, here in Choice Uncirculated. A great opportunity to add the last ever silver sixpence to your collection in wonderful condition…

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.
