About Three Pences

Going through your grandfather's old chest of things, you would not be surprised to find a collection of old coins or foreign money. During the world wars, it was very common for soldiers to send their family foreign currency, like the British three pence, as souvenirs from their time abroad. Money has changed a lot over the centuries. There are ancient gold pieces from the Roman empires and bronze and silver coins from various places across Europe. All forms of coin and paper money degrade over time, and the three pence is no exception to that, meaning that condition plays a large role in value. The silver three pence is the most common to see, since it was produced in so many versions over the centuries. All three pence coins ceased production in 1970. No matter what year or country you desire, the sellers on eBay offer a massive selection from which to choose.
