History behind the coin
King George VI Silver Threepence were minted from 1937 to 1945, with a peak production of almost 8 million annually in 1940 and in 1941.
The issues of 1942-44 were all shipped to the British West Indies, however, the coin's final issue was apparently deemed redundant because of the public acceptance of the 12-sided nickel-brass coin. All of the 1945 Silver Threepence were ordered to be melted, their metal used in other mint products.
