Australia, George V Sixpence

In 1910 Australia struck its first-ever Silver coins. The next coins issued carried the face of King George V. Australia carried on striking George V coins until 1936. One interesting note about the Sixpences of King George V is that they were struck in Sterling Silver. We stopped using Sterling Silver in our coins in 1919. Dates will be of our choice, but all the coins are in Very Good-Fine condition. You have George V on one side and the arms of Australia on the other side with a kangaroo and an emu. Nice coins not all that easy to find...

Picture of Edward VII, Silver Sixpence Very Good

Edward VII, Silver Sixpence Very Good

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.

Picture of George V, Threepence 1919 (the last struck in Sterling Silver) Fine

George V, Threepence 1919 (the last struck in Sterling Silver) Fine

In 1919 the Royal Mint issued the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence for circulation. The next year, 1920, they reduced the silver content in our coins from 925 fine silver to 500 fine silver. King George V was on the Throne and World War I was just over, the economy needed the extra income from less silver in our coinage. We can offer the last ever Sterling Silver Threepence in Fine condition for just £8.50. It shows what inflation does to our money, today there is no silver in our coins just cupro-nickel, and even the smallest coins are only copper-plated steel.
