King George VI Sixpence History
King George VI 1937 to 1945 Australian wedding sixpence is 92.5% silver, after which it changed to 50% silver
George VI became King unexpectedly following the abdication of his brother, King Edward VIII, in December 1936.
A conscientious and dedicated man, he worked hard to adapt to the role into which he was suddenly thrown.
Reserved by nature, and of deep religious belief, he was helped in his work by his wife. He had married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923, known affectionately as “The Queen Mother”.
These are lovely sixpences, incorporating the date of the start and finish of the Second World War.
