Three Cent Silver - APMEX offers a superb selection of certified Three Cent Silver pieces.
Proposed in response to the decrease in postage rates from five to three cents and to the need for a small-denomination coin, three cent Silver pieces are the lightest weight coins ever minted by the U.S. Its tiny size and appearance earned the Three Cent piece the nickname “fish scale.”
Design of Silver 3 Cents
The obverse features a shield set within a six-sided star, while the reverse portrays the Roman numeral III. Certified Three Cent pieces will add value to your collection.
