British predecimal threepence coin

The Royal Mint issued British Pound coins in 16 different denominations, including this British predecimal threepence coin. They are part of the predecimal and withdrawn Pound Sterling coins series. The Royal Mint started issuing these 0.0125 British Pound coins in 1937. They were withdrawn from circulation in 1970.

The brass threepence coin has a mass of 6.8 grams and a diameter of 21.8mm. The 3d coin has a 12-sided shape, which inspired the new £1 coin issued from 2017. The predecimal threepence coin is the equivalent of 1/80 of a Pound Sterling. The three pence piece was often referred to as a ‘threepenny bit’ or ‘half a sixpence’. There are multiple design variations of the obverse side, including the tudor portcullis and a floral design. The reverse side has a portrait of the Monarch (King George VI or Elizabeth II).
