George VI 1944 Halfcrown Fine

In the reign of King George VI our coinage made a drastic change. After World War II, in 1947, they removed all the Silver from our coins. In his Father’s reign (George V) they reduced the silver content from Sterling Silver to only 500 Fine Silver. Now the coins were to be made for the first time in a base metal rather than a precious metal.
