The 1920-M Sixpence was the final issue in the sixpence series to have a Melbourne 'M' mint-mark. The reverse features W. H. J. Blakemore's simple Coat of Arms design and the obverse houses George W. De Saules portrait of King George V. The small 'M' mint-mark is also located beneath the date on the reverse. The total mintage for the year was 1,476,000 which is relatively typical for the series.
Between 1916 and 1920 the Melbourne Mint produced sixpence with a small 'M' mint-mark. In 1921 the mint-mark was removed when the Commonwealth Government decided they wanted the dies to be interchangeable between mints.
