Threepence Values - United Kingdom

Threepence

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.


Further detail

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.
