Sixpence 1937 (pattern), Coin from Australia - detailed information

Sixpence 1937 (pattern), Coin from Australia (withdrawn 1966)
CoinSixpence 1937 (pattern)

A few 1937 pattern sixpences have been reported but no confirmation has been found, so the existence of this coin is under doubt. The description below assumes that they are like the florin and shilling patterns of the same year. These either had the portrait of Edward VIII who abdicated so the portrait was machined off the coin later, or were struck uniface to begin with.

None (the coin is uniface).

Obverse Inscription None
Reverse

The reverse features the Ensigns Armorial of the Commonwealth of Australia, as authorised by Royal Warrant 7th May 1908.

At centre, simple shield enclosing a cross of Saint George on which are five six-pointed stars, around the outside of which are six small escutcheons (small shields). The shield is supported by a kangaroo and an emu standing on a grassy mound. Above the shield a crest, the seven-pointed star of Federation on a wreath and on a ribbon at the base the motto ADVANCE AUSTRALIA is inscribed.

Around above, the denomination SIXPENCE; below, between arrow heads, the date 1937.
