King George VI Sixpence History
King George VI 1946 to 1952 Australian wedding sixpence is 50% silver.
The Sixpence dated 1952 is considered quite rare as that year the King died. If 1952 is sold, this sixpence will come in the white packaging free of charge.
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.
Why not add a silver sixpence holder so you can wear it as a necklace or bracelet. See last photo and the holder is for sale on the shop.
