The 1942 M Australian Sixpence was minted in Melbourne, Australia and comprises of 92.5% silver, 7.5% copper. 

With approx. 8,968,000 minted, it is considered relatively common for period.

I would grade this example as Very Fine.

The 1942 Australian sixpence obverse features features the bare head of King George VI facing left, with the legend: 'GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX F:D:IND:IMP.'.

The reverse shows the word 'SIXPENCE' and the Australian Coat of Arms. A kangaroo and an emu hold a shield, with a star above. Below is a scroll with the words 'ADVANCE AUSTRALIA', then the date underneath.
