1920

In February 1920 the price of silver rose to record prices - to 5/6d or 

(0.275 pence) per ounce which meant that it cost more than the

legal tender value of the coins to make them. As a result the

government hastily decided to reduce the fineness of the silver

coinage from the recognised 0.925 fineness to the new reduced

0.500 fineness. Did was achieved in the first instant by mixing  

1/2 silver & 1/2 copper together. This was quickly followed by mixing

1/2 silver & 1/2 cupro-nickel 'discarded' bullet shell cases - they

consisted of 90% copper & 10% nickel. 

These early coins when worn turned to a dull brown !

1921

The metal mix was never considered quite right so in 1921 the

nickel content was reduced from 10% to 5% and the other 5% was

now manganese but due to this the coins quickly 'coppered'. 

Even new the coins had a slightly gunmetal grey appearance 

instead of a 'silver' colour.

1922

The problem of getting the right metal mix continued.

In 1922 the original idea of using 1/2 silver & 1/2 copper was 

retried this time with the blank or coin planchets being deeply

blanched or bleached which meant that a higher percentage of 

silver resided on the coin surface - which would give a more

silvered look to the coin. Again this was not the solution !

The final attempt to get the dies and the metal mix right occurred

when the final mixture became - 50% silver, 40% copper, 5% nickel

& 5% zinc. This combination appeared to worked.
