Notes:

High quality forgeries of this coin exist - usually created by filing the San Francisco or Denver mintmark off coins minted in the U.S.A.

In 1999, the Canberra mint released a .999 Silver Twenty Cents frosted proof coin with a reverse design of the 1942 threepence as part of a six coin Masterpieces in Silver set.
