Threepence 1912 (Circulating), Coin from United Kingdom - detailed information

Threepence 1912 (Circulating), Coin from United Kingdom (demonetised 1971)
CoinThreepence 1912 (Circulating)

There were two forms of threepence, the currency issue like this piece (with a duller surface), and a special piece for the Maundy Thursday ceremonies - both with numeral 3 on the reverse but the Maundy issues have a proof-like finish.

Apart from the surface quality, they are indistinguishable. For the purpose of completeness though, the Maundy coins are listed separately in the Non Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) section.
