|The obverse was originally designed for use on Edward VIII
coins and it is by Sir Thomas Humphrey Pagent.
The reverse is by George Kruger Gray.
There were two types produced in every year from 1937 to
1951. One reverse had a Scottish design and the other had
an English design. There are only one or two known 1952
shillings in existence.
From 1947 to 1952 the silver content was removed and
sixpence's were struck in Cupro-Nickel.
After 1948 the title of emperor of India (IND:IMP) was no
longer used on the penny because India had became
1937-1947 .500 Silver, 5.6 grams, 23mm Diameter.
1947-1952 Cupro-Nickel, 5.68 grams, 23mm Diameter.
