The 1937-1946 Great Britain Sixpence Silver Coin (.0455 oz of Silver) was minted during the reign of King George VI, who ruled the United Kingdom and her Dominions from December of 1936 until his death in February 1952. Each sixpence contains .500 fine silver and has a silver weight of .0455 troy ounces.

The obverse design has a portrait of King George IV designed by T. H. Paget. Struck around the top part of the rim is "GEORGIUS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX" abbreviated for "GEORGIUS VI DEI : GRATIA : BRITANNIA : OMNI : REX FIDEI." This translates to "George VI, by the Grace of God, King of all the Britons."

The reverse, designed by George Krueger-Gray, has a crown with the mint-date separated on either side. Struck along the top rim is "FID : DEF : IND : IMP", abbreviated for "FIDEI : DEFENSOR : INDIA : IMPERATOR" meaning, "Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India". Struck along the bottom rim is the denominational vale of "SIXPENCE".

This was the last silver sixpence struck in Great Britain. From 1947 onward, they were made from base metal. Purchase the 1937-1946 Great Britain Sixpence Silver Coin - .0455 oz of Silver at Gainesville Coins and discover history!
