Threepence (Circulating), Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Threepence (Circulating), Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 1834 - 1970)
Coin TypeThreepence (Circulating)

The British threepence (3d) coin, usually simply known as a threepence or threepenny bit, was a unit of currency equaling one eightieth of a pound sterling, or three pence sterling. It was used in the United Kingdom, and earlier in Great Britain and England. Similar denominations were later used throughout the British Empire, notably in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Threepence coins had been issued for a long time as "Maundy" money (non circulating legal tender, distributed in very small amounts by the King or Queen in person). Apart from their prooflike surface, they are virtually indistinguishable from the circulating coins. For consistency though, the Maundy threepence coins are listed separately in the NCLT section together with the other Maundy denominations.

The threepence was first issued for circulation in Britain in 1845, earlier circulation pieces were for Colonial use only.

The sum of three pence was pronounced variously THROOP-ence, THREPP-ence or THRUPP-ence, reflecting different pronunciations in the various regions and nations of the United Kingdom. Likewise, the coin was often referred to in conversation as a THROOP-nee, THREPP-nee or THRUPP-nee bit.

Before Decimal Day in 1971 there were two hundred and forty pence in one pound sterling. Twelve pence made a shilling, and twenty shillings made a pound. Values less than a pound were usually written in terms of shillings and pence, e.g. forty-two pence would be three shillings and six pence (3/6), pronounced "three and six". Values of less than a shilling were simply written in terms of pence, e.g. eight pence would be 8d.

Following decimalisation, the threepence ceased to be legal tender after 31 August 1971.
