Silver Threepence

Prior to 1920, the silver threepence was struck from 0.925 fine silver. In 1920 this was changed to 0.500 fine silver. As these coins are chosen at random, the silver content will vary. 

Thruppence or 'Thrupenny Bit' 

The coin has had many nicknames as is sometimes referred to as a 'Joey'.

Brass Threepence

Brass threepences were introduced in 1937 and were in circulation at the same time as the silver counterpart. As the silver threepence was so small, easy to bend and easily lost, the public generally preferred the brass version and so the mint ceased production of the silver coins in 1944. They do however continue to produce silver threepences as part of the Maundy Money Sets. 

Obverse

The monarch and obverse design will vary.

Reverse

There are 3 reverse designs for the silver threepence:

Crown

This type was produced until 1927 and features the number '3' with the date on either side. A crown sits atop of the number three. The Maundy Threepence continues to feature this reverse.

Oak Leaves

In 1927 the design changed to show 3 oak sprigs and 3 acorns. 

Shield

In 1937 the design changed again to show a shield with the Cross of St George in the centre. A Tudor Rose is featured behind it.
