Edward VII Silver 3d

We just bought a large collection of King Edward VII Silver Threepences, the smallest silver coin issued by this Monarch for general usage. We have not checked the dates, but they were issued from 1902-1910. They were stuck in Sterling Silver and are well over 100 years old. We are not going to be sorting them, but just taking them out of the sack as they come. They are in Very Good or better condition and we know they are not easy to get. Everything before King George V is difficult to find, maybe it is because they are so old and struck in Sterling Silver. We offer individual coins here - if you order more than one you will get different dates: we won’t guarantee which dates you will get, but that they will be different. Great coins, the King only had coins for ten years and they are all over 100 years old…

1914 Sterling Silver 3d

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.

1933 Silver 3d

It was the height of the Depression and Roosevelt had called a ‘Bank Holiday’ and closed all the banks. He later declared it illegal for American citizens to own gold coins. The United States and the world were in a terrible state. Yet under King George V, this country still issued the Threepence in Silver. They were 500 fine Silver and the smallest coin struck in silver in this country. To make people happy the film King Kong came out that same year. The 1933 Silver Threepences we have on offer are in Fine condition and are now 85 years old. If for nothing else, it reminds you that governments will try to forbid their citizens to own gold coins, but not at Coincraft!

George VI 3d Brass 1949 Circulated

The brass threepence was first issued in 1937 and last issued in 1967. 1949 is one of the scarce dates of the George VI issue. Each coin is in selected circulated condition and is of course scarce and difficult to find. It has taken some time to put this group together, many of the coins while struck in this country, were shipped overseas to help with a shortage of small coins.

1931 Silver 3d

In 1931 King George V was on the throne and the world was in the height of the Great Depression. Our coins were struck in 500 fine silver and the lowest silver denomination struck was the Threepence. You have the bare head of the King on one side and three acorns on the other side. The coins on offer are all dated 1931 and are in Fine condition. These coins are now 87 years old. They make a wonderful gift or you can use them in the Christmas pudding. In either case, most people under a certain age will never have seen them. Get them while you can.
