In the UK, there were two coins in circulation in 1953: the shilling and the sixpence. Here’s a closer look at these coins:
The shilling is made of cupronickel a new type of metal in 1953 for coinage, a type of metal that is resistant to corrosion. It featured a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and a shield on the reverse.
The sixpence was also made of cupronickel and featured a portrait of Queen Elizabeth on the obverse and a six-part floral design on the reverse.
