Obverse: Facing bust of Edward VI, rose to left and value VI to right. Reverse: Shield on cross. Mintmark Tun. Near Extremely Fine with a superb portrait, an attractive and rare coin especially so choice and the Sixpence is much scarcer than the Shilling
Anice example of a pre-decimal Elizabeth II Sixpence in Uncirculated condition. The Sixpence was the only coin that did not have a decimal equivalent that was allowed to still be used when decimal coins came in. That was because it was the price of a phone call in a call box and decimal coins were causing too many problems at that time.
