DescriptionThree pence coin king george 1943 very rare
First of all The nickel-brass coin king george three pence took over the bulk of the production of the denomination.
Also being produced in all years between 1937 and 1952 except 1947.
Further more Apart from the king’s head and name,
And the weight being increased to 6.8 grams,
the coin was identical to that prepared for Edward VIII
4] Coins dated 1946 and 1949 were minted in far fewer numbers than the rest,
And as nickel-brass wears very quickly, higher grade specimens of these coins are expensive to buy now (both over £500 for uncirculated examples).
coin KING GEORGE THREE PENCE
By the end of George V’s reign, in 1936,
the traditional silver three pence had fallen out of favour in England,
and as Edward VIII looked to take the throne,
a new three penny bit was in the offing,
this being the 12-sided, brass coin that would remain in circulation until 1971
when it ceased to be legal tender.
However, for collector’s of English coins,
it is perhaps the 1943 three pence that is among the most interesting of all coins.
The value of a three pence – in this case we are talking about the 12-sided, brass ‘thrupenny bit‘
that was produced during the 20th century .
varies depending upon the year it was minted, and the rarity of that year’s issue.
Therefore, it can be anywhere between a few pence and quite large amounts of money.13 Jan 2020
