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
of 25,056,000. This is the second highest
across both types in the Queen Elizabeth II sixpence series. This high
has translated into an abundance of extremely affordable mint-state examples, including pieces that grade as high as MS67.
