The above shown coins are all minted in half silver, but many sellers pass them off as full silver only. It may be noted that coins having 90% silver were minted in 1938 and 1939 in the George VI series, after that the silver content was lowered to 50%. At the same time, the 1939 rupee was made of 50% silver only.
