Australian Three Pence Coin

The Three Pence Coin

The Australian Three Pence Coin is a small silver or nickel-brass coin used in the Commonwealth of Australia prior to decimalisation. It was minted from 1910 until 1964, excluding 1913, 1929–1933 inclusive, 1937, 1945 and 1946. After decimalisation on 14 February 1966, the coin was equivalent to 2½¢, but was rapidly withdrawn from circulation.

During World War II,  coin production was supplemented by coinage produced by the United States Mint at the San Francisco and Denver mints. Coins minted at the San Francisco mint from 1942–1944 contain a small capital S on the reverse, while coins produced at the Denver mint from 1942–1943 have a small capital D on the reverse.

Now The Artisan Mint Works can transform one of these coins into a beautifully handcrafted ring, with a vibrant golden hue and comfortable fit. Click on the image below for more information and ordering.

  1. Aw, this was a very nice post. Spending some time and actual effort to create a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done. Normal I blig about vintage finger rings
