Great Britain 1, 2, 3, and 4 Pence  1902 to Date
Great Britain 1, 2, 3, and 4 Pence 1902 to Date

Thanks for your thorough description of your British 3 pence coin, Judy. (And yes, colonel is a rough word to spell.) That's King George V on your coin. After 1936 King George VI appears on these coins. Before 1911 it's King Edward VII.

This page applies to silver 1 (penny), 2, 3, and 4 pence coins. There are copper pennies as well.

These silver coins are not very valuable, unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. Circulated coins are worth about $1 US dollar or so. Uncirculated coins can reach as high as $40 to $50 in catalog value. But catalog values are inflated values (see our Important Terminology page), so uncirculated specimens usually trade in the $20 range.

Coin: 721 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

I have a 1906 Great Britain silver ThreePence sterlin silver coin its just a little aged . I love to know more about it and what its worth. they have one on e bay it looks a little cleaner and its going for $139.99 I think mine is worth more but would like to know for sure .thank you and bless you

$140 is way out of range for a normal threepence. I see it on eBay. $139.99 is the ASKING price. It has not sold at that price. Asking price means nothing. Actual sales are the only measure of value. There is a 1906 threepence at this eBay page [PRESS HERE] with a more normal selling price. - CoinQuest (Paul)

Thanks for your valuation. I have a box full of coins of various
currencies, I must have a look at them and see if I have any of value. - A.J . Attrill.
