George VI, Pair of 1937 Threpences AR & BR Uncirculated

For the Coronation of King George VI the Royal Mint decided to issue two totally different Threepences. The normal Silver Threepence was still being struck, except with a new design for the new King. But the Mint also issued a Brass Threepence for the first time. Eventually the silver issue would be abandoned and the brass coin would continue to be made until 1967 when the stopped making pre-decimal coins. I can offer a very limited number of collectors not only the 1937 Silver Threepence but also the 1937 Brass Threepence. But both coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, how fantastic is that? Issued 82 years ago for the Queen’s Father’s Coronation and still as nice as when they were issued. Supplies are very limited, so please order early…

George V, Threepence Sterling Silver, 1914

This George V Sterling Silver threepence was issued in 1914 just at the start of World War One. Later, in 1920, they reduced the fineness of the silver used in our coinage from 925 (Sterling) to 500 fine or half silver. This little ‘Joey’ as the threepence was known was the smallest silver coin issued at the time for circulation. The coins have the bare head of the King on one side and a crowned ‘3’ on the other side. The coins are in Fine condition and are now 104 years old.

Victoria, Wreath Sixpence Gem Uncirculated, 1887

Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837 and in 1838 they issued her first coinage. Because she was so young when she became Queen, this new coinage became known as Young Head Coins. In 1887 when she celebrated her Gold Jubilee, she finally allowed her portrait to be changed on the coins, this new portrait became known as the Jubilee Head Coinage. It only lasted from 1887 until 1892 when it was again changed. We have spent years accumulating enough 1887 Jubilee Head coins in high grades to offer them to you. All are struck in Sterling Silver and all are dated 1887 the first year of this new coinage. For years collectors have assumed that these coins are common. But in fact in the higher grades these coins have become very difficult to find. Prices while they have risen are still very affordable, especially when you think that they are 131 years old. On offer here is a Victoria 1887 sixpence featuring wreath in gem uncirculated grade.

Elizabeth II, Sixpence Proof, 1970

Going back to the time of Elizabeth I, it was tradition for a bride to have a sixpence in her shoe. If her husband beat her, she had enough money to go somewhere and make it all better. Let’s be honest in the 16th Century it went a lot further than it does today. It’s a nice tradition and nowadays, a sixpence in your shoe is for good luck, after all, today you would have to have a couple of thousand pounds in your shoes. That way the bride would be lopsided going down the aisle. The last Sixpence made for circulation was in 1967, but in 1970 the Royal Mint issued a Proof Set with the last of the pre-decimal coins. Included was a Sixpence dated 1970 and in Proof condition. It is that last ever 1970 Sixpence that we now offer you and yes, they are in Proof condition.
