Old coin, one lying in the sun? (6)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'old coin' is the first definition.
(historical sixpence coin)

'one lying in the sun?' is the second definition.
(someone trying to get a sun tan)

(Other definitions for tanner that I've seen before include "Curer of hides, maker of leather" , "Hide worker; old coin" , "one getting bronzed?" , "One might catch the sun" , "Pre-decimal sixpenny piece" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
