1920 British 3 Pence Coin

This entry is a about a 1920 British 3 Pence Coin. On its front or obverse we find an image of King George V who inherited the throne when he was 44 years old. He didn’t grant his 1st cousin Tsar Nicholas II or Empress Alexandra Feodorovna asylum in Britain during the Russian Revolution. Not long after the 2 leading Romanovs were executed by the Bolsheviks. Though he couldn’t have anticipated the Romanovs being killed, the whole ordeal greatly bothered George V. Not long after he dispatched the battleship HMS Marlborough to rescue Russian Grand Duchess Xenia as well as other surviving Romanovs. This 1920 British Great Britain 3 Pence coin is made out of 50 percent silver which was a change as previous 3 Pence coins were composed of sterling silver. This 1920 three p coin had a mintage of 16,704,999 in that year.
