Silver Threepences

                  threepence coins

Silver threepenny bits were issued between 1834 and 1944. Although we sell many individual silver 3d coins to coin collectors, we also get frequent requests for examples to put into christmas puddings.
"Silver thruppnies" in Xmas Puds !  Now there's a custom going back who knows how long. Most people over a certain age will remember when the practice was quite standard, even for many years after silver threepences were replaced by the brass coins. Many families used to keep a little store of them, but over the years these stocks have often dwindled.
We can supply silver three pence coins !  These are usually in decent circulated condition, though not up to the standards usually sought by numismatists.

They are quite cheap, and we sell them mail order in small batches. See the options for online ordering below. Of course they can also be bought over-the-counter in our shop (where from time to time we have some odd cheaper batches available), or you can order in the normal way if you want to buy other things at the same time (see "How to Order" below).

Warning One. We cannot recommend putting hard objects into food !  Putting coins into a pudding obviously has the potential dangers of damaging teeth, or of swallowing/choking. You do so at your own choice and risk.
Warning Two. These coins will not have been cleaned. Traditionally, people used to wrap the coins in greaseproof paper.

Ten mixed silver 3d coins, including postage to a UK address. Not currently available mail order, due to fluctuating silver prices. Normally available in our shop.
