South Africa 3 and 6 Pence  1923 to 1925
South Africa 3 and 6 Pence 1923 to 1925

South Africa issued coins with this pattern only between 1923 to 1925. After that, the pattern shown on this page took over.

The three and six pence contain small amounts of silver. This is not too significant unless you have a bunch of these coins. Here are the stats:

3 PENCE: 0.0363 troy ounces silver
6 PENCE: 0.0728 ounces silver

Multiply the current price of silver (see kitco.com) by 0.0363 or 0.0773 and you have the minimum value that this coin is worth.

But these coins are somewhat rare, so collector demand out shadows silver value, especially at high grades:

3 PENCE
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $9
well preserved: $25
fully uncirculated: $70
3 pence dated 1925 (that look like this picture) are rare and catalog near $200 in well preserved condition; worn coins are worth much less

6 PENCE
worn: $5 US dollars approximate catalog value
average circulated: $12
well preserved: $35
fully uncirculated: $90

These are inflated catalog values. Use our Terminology page to convert catalog value to actual value.

Coin: 14014 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
