Prior to 1920 British silver coins contained high purity, 92.5% (Sterling) silver.
From 1920 to 1946, British silver coins contained 50% silver.
From 1947 onwards, some denominations of British pre-decimal coins issued for circulation were "silver-colored," however these coins were made of copper-nickel, and contained no silver.
In addition, there have been some silver decimal coins minted in limited quantities as commemorative or bullion issues, typically in Proof condition; these coins were not intended for circulation.
The standard circulating denominations of pre-decimal British coins from 1800 to 1946 which contained 92.5% or 50% silver, included threepences, sixpences, shillings, florins, two shillings, halfcrowns, double florins, and crowns and we buy them all .

To sell us your old silver threepences, sixpences, shillings, florins, two shillings, halfcrowns, double florins, crowns and dollars etc you'll need an idea of their value.
Firstly you'll need a set of scales. Kitchen scales will do.
Split up your coins into the different grades of silver by checking dates above. Weigh each grade It's as easy as that. You don't need to split them into different nominations eg shiilings, crowns etc, just dates. The weight you'll need is grams.
If you have used modern gram scales you'll have no problem in getting the gram weight. If you've used ounces and pounds scales then to get the gram weight remember there are 16 ounces in a pound and there are 28 grams in a (cooking ounce) (A troy ounce is actully 31.1 grams but if you have used cooking scales and not jewellers scales ie where an ounce is 28 grams, just multiply as above to get the gram weight.
16 ounces in a pound (lb)
28 grams in an ounce
eg 4lbs of silver = (4x16ozs x 28grams per ounce= 1792 grams.)
eg 32 cooking ounces of silver= 32x 28grams =896 grams
eg 32 troy ounces (weighed on jewellers scales) =995 grams
Then just click on the link below and use the calculator. There is a drop-down box detailing all the different grade of silver you'll have. Put in your weight and away you go!
