About Silver Threepenny Pieces
In olden days, a silver Threepenny piece represented three Pennies or quarter of a Shilling. From the year 1831, the Threepence contained 92.5 per cent pure silver. In 1920, the silver content was reduced to 50 per cent and this coin was in circulation until 1945. The pre-1920 round silver Threepenny piece commands a high value for its pure silver content, given the high prices of silver. These coins are available on eBay and coin collectors may want to add some to their collection. Shoppers must, however, ensure that the coins they are buying line up with the details in the listing. Vintage coins can be purchased from top-rated eBay sellers, and some sellers offer free delivery as well.
