Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1956

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.

Elizabeth II, Sixpence Uncirculated, 1957

This is a strange coin; when I moved to London in 1968 this coin cost more in real terms than it does now. Everyone was trying to put together a set of pre-decimal coins in uncirculated condition and this is one of the coins that caused a little bit of trouble. Everyone puts away the first year of a new design and especially if it is a Coronation year (1953). The second year less are put away and as time goes on fewer and fewer are put away, until it gets very difficult to find uncirculated examples of some dates. We bought a small group of 1957 Queen Elizabeth II Sixpences in uncirculated condition. Not a rare coin, but one that is difficult to find if you need one. They are very inexpensive at just £3.95; they actually cost more in 1968 than I am charging now.
