George V  1911 to 1927, First Design 

A new design with a lion surmounting a crown was issued. The silver content was reduced from 92.5% to 50% in 1920. Telling the difference comes from experience, as the hardness of the metal changed making the strike look slightly different.

Obverse : Head left, GEORGIVS V DEI GRA BRITT OMN REX around. The head was modified during 1926. 

Reverse : Lion on crown, dividing the date, FID DEF IND IMP above, SIX PENCE below.

The sixpence (6d;), sometimes known as a tanner or sixpenny bit, was a coin worth one-fortieth of a pound sterling, or six pence. It was first minted in the reign of Edward VI and circulated until 1980. Following decimalisation in 1971 it had a value of 2 1⁄2 new pence. The coin was made from silver from its introduction in 1551 to 1947, and thereafter in cupronickel.
