What is a threepence from the United Kingdom worth?
Values, images, and specifications for threepence coins from the UK, Great Britain,
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, dependancies, and British colonies from 1801 to 1967.
The threepence was not a popular denomination
in the earlier years post formation of the UK,
used only in Maundy sets under George III and
George IV, then also minted for use in the
British colonies from 1834 under William IV
and the early years of Victoria's reign.
From 1845, threepence coins were minted
for circulation within the United Kingdom,
and continued under all monarchs, except
Edward VIII, up until decimilisation.
The threepence was made from 92.5% silver until
1920, when the silver content was reduced to 50%.
In 1937 the nickel-brass 12 sided threepence was
introduced, running alongside the silver threepence in
the UK until 1941, when silver was discontinued for
domestic 3d use.
The silver threepence continued to be minted for colonial
use until 1945, although the 1945 3d were melted down
and did not make it to circulation.
Maundy 3d continued to be made from silver.
1 threepence = 3 pennies = 1/4 shilling = 1/80 pound
The first circulation issue UK threepence was minted in
1834, and the last in 1967.
