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
Edward VII Silver Sixpence. Very Good. They struck coins for King Edward VII from 1902 until 1910, a rather short reign. But then again he had to wait for Queen Victoria to pass away and she lived quite a long time. All of his silver coins are struck in Sterling Silver and the most difficult denomination to get is the Sixpence.
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.
