Silver coins that have been minted for use in everyday transactions include threepence, sixpence, shillings, florins, half crowns, crowns and double florins . These coins are available in different sizes, weights and silver content.
Coins dated before 1920 contained 92.5% silver and from 1920 to 1946, they contained 50% silver. The coins produced pre-1920 are worth almost double what the coins from 1920-1946 are worth in value.
