The coin was worth five shillings, which was a quarter of a Pound. Purity was inconsistent until 1816, at which point the Royal Mint was able to accurately make the coins at 92.5% purity. During the war years this purity dropped to 500 purity (50%), and after the Second World War the coin no longer contained silver, instead being made from Cupronickel to imitate the precious metal.
