How to use "Sixpence" in context?
When the sixpence was originally introduced in 1694, it was known as a copper coin. Its design is of a Tudor Rose, or, according to other sources, a heraldic shield with the motto "Nemo me impune lacessit" (No one attacks me with impunity).
Initially, the coin was minted with a matte finish, which was covered in a thin coat of wax to give it a more even appearance. This was done so that the coin would not rust and cause problems for the government. In 1797, the mint began issuing the coin with a milled finish, which made it more durable.
