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

1 PENCE (PENNY)
circulated: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
uncirculated: $40

2 PENCE
circulated: $2 US dollar approximate catalog value
uncirculated: $40

3 PENCE
circulated: $1 US dollar approximate catalog value
uncirculated: $30

4 PENCE (GROAT)
circulated: $3 US dollar approximate catalog value
uncirculated: $50

As you can see, these silver coins are not very valuable, unless they are in fully uncirculated condition. But catalog values are inflated values (see our Important Terminology page), so uncirculated specimens usually trade in the $20 range.

If you have all four denominations in uncirculated condition and with the same date, you probably have a 'Maundy Set.' These sets are quite valuable. See this CoinQuest page for pictures and values of Maundy Sets.

Coin: 721 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies

Requester description: 1920 across the middle it has 19 with a huge 3 in the middle next to that it has the 20 meaning the coin is from 1920. around the sides is like a leafy vine cicurling from the bottom around the sides to the top with a crown on top of the number 3. on the reverse side a picture of a man maybe a cornel *sorry for spelling* face of a man. letters or maybe names in this order from left to right. georgivs v d.g.britt:omn:rex f.d.ind:imp: where it ends around the right bottom side of the coin.
