What happened in 1945?

- World War II ended with the signing of the Japanese Instrument of Surrender on September 2, 1945, bringing an end to the deadliest conflict in human history.

In 1945, two coins were in circulation in the UK: the shilling and the sixpence. Here is a brief description of each:
Shilling: The shilling was a silver coin that was worth one twentieth of a pound. It featured a portrait of King George VI on the obverse side, and a crowned lion standing on a crown on the reverse side.
Sixpence: The sixpence was a small silver coin that was worth six pennies. It featured the same design as the shilling, with a portrait of King George VI on the obverse side and a crowned lion standing on a crown on the reverse side.
