Australia Sixpence 1942

The Australia Sixpence coin was a coin that was made between the year of 1910 and 1963.  There were a few years during that time frame where it was not struck.   Once Australia decided to decimalise its currency the sixpence became obsolete.  Initially and up until the year 1945 they were sterling silver (.925 fine) and then from 1946 until their end they were 50% silver.  So below you’ll see our Australia Sixpence 1942 which is sterling silver and the other 7.5% is copper.  This coin has a weight of 2.83 grams.  There is a D mint mark on the back of it signifying that it was made in Denver, Colorado USA where 12 million were struck that year.  Our Australia Sixpence 1942 has some beautiful mint luster to it still.
