George VI, Collection of World War II Silver Sixpences
World War II lasted from 1939-1945, during that period our coinage was still
struck in 500 fine Silver. That was because cupro-nickel was of much more use
to the War Effort than silver. The Sixpence or Tanner was one of our most loved coins,
until decimalization took over.
We are offering the complete date set of World War II Silver Sixpences, 1939-
1945. You get 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944 and 1945 Sixpences all struck in
500 fine Silver. They are in Fine condition and make an interesting display piece when
you are talking about the War. Unless you are a certain age, you might never have seen
a sixpence, let alone a silver one.
