George VI

1938 - 52

After the coronation of HM King George VI in 1937 the obverseof the Sixpence changed to feature the uncrowned bust of His Majesty facing to the left with the legend, GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX F : D : IND : IMP ('George VI, by the grace of god, Ruler and King of Britain, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India'). This legend remained in use until 1948 when India gained independence and the legend was changed to read 'GEORGIVS VI D : G : BR : OMN : REX FIDEI DEF.' ('George VI, by the grace of god, Ruler and King of Britain, Defender of the Faith'). This second type was issued between 1950 and the end of George VIs reign in 1952.
