The sixpence (6d), sometimes known as a tanner or sixpenny bit, was a coin worth one-fortieth of a pound sterling, or six pence. It was first minted in the reign of Edward VI and circulated until 1980. Following decimalisation in 1971 it had a value of 2½ new pence. The coin was made from silver from its introduction in 1551 to 1947, and thereafter in cupronickel.

Tanner – this alternative name for the sixpence – probably dates from the early 1800s and seems to have its root in the Romany gypsy ‘tawno’ which means ‘small one’.
