1945 Sixpence Gem BU

This coin was struck the year before the last silver Sixpence ever was struck, so the 1945 Sixpence is the Penultimate Silver Sixpence. It was issued under King George VI and just after the end of World War II. There is something about a coin struck in silver, they just look and feel great. These coins were put away in 1945 and therefore are in outstanding condition. We have them in the two highest grades you can get; this particular one is the Gem Uncirculated variant. We know you will love them.

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.

George VI Shilling Scottish 1944 Choice Uncirculated

1944 was near the end of the time that the Royal Mint would strike coins in silver, in fact there were only two years left. At that time they issued Shillings with either a Scottish or an English reverse. The Scottish coins had lower mintages and therefore are scarcer. We have a very small group in high grades, but as supplies are limited, we suggest you get in as soon as you can. This coin is offered in Choice Uncirculated condition.
