The sixpence coin was first struck in 1551 during the reign of Edward VI. Owing to the debasement of Britain’s silver coinage during the 1540s, particularly the testoon. The precursor to the shilling had seen its value halved from twelve pence to six. The sixpence quickly established itself as a popular fixture of Britain’s coinage. It acquired the nickname ‘tanner’, and in more superstitious times became a symbol of good fortune. Tucked in the bride’s shoe come wedding day, served up in a slice of Christmas pudding or given as a christening gift – the notion of a lucky sixpence has become embedded in British tradition.
Sixpences were minted from 1551 and was used under every monarch. The Sixpence was one of the most popular pre-decimal coins. When the switch to decimal currency came in 1968, lots of people were disappointed that no place could be found for it as part of the new coinage.
