This is a 1937 George VI Brass Threepence. During this date there were two types of threepence; one made from silver and one from brass.
The picture shown is of a brass threepence and is one of our sample photos. The coin shown may not be the coin you receive.
Photographs shown may not be the actual coin and may differ in terms of grade, die numbers, design flaws and other minor details. Please get in touch if you require a photograph prior to purchase.
One of the proposed coinage reforms of Edward VIII's reign (carried over to that of George VI following the abdication) was the introduction of brass threepence coins to replace the tiny silver issues which had been circulating for many years. The high cost of silver, in addition to the ease with which the tiny silver threepence got lost were factors in this decision. However, the silver issues continued to be popular in Scotland and the colonies, and so the two issues continued to be struck and circulated side by side until the end of the Second World War.
