Sales History

The 1963 Sixpence was the final year issued in the entire sixpence series before the introduction of decimal currency in 1966. It was struck at the Melbourne Mint with a total mintage of 25,056,000. This is the second highest mintage across both types in the Queen Elizabeth II sixpence series. This high mintage has translated into an abundance of extremely affordable mint-state examples, including pieces that grade as high as MS67.
