During World War II, the Denver Mint struck silver coins for Australia (1942 and 1943) to meet the increased demand for coinage. The coins can be identified by a D mint mark above the date on the reverse. It is estimated that 20,000,000 Sixpences were minted in Denver for Australia across 1942-1943.
