Old coins: strike gold with pre-decimal silver

Threepenny bits. (80 to a £1) With one of these I could buy some Lincoln biscuits to have with my bottle of free milk at school.

British Shilling. The Brits were still using "old money" when I lived in London in 1968/69. You needed a constant supply of shillings for the electricity and the gas, each of which had meters.

UK old money in coins! On the left,- Farthing, Threepenny bit, sixpence. Middle,- halfpenny, shilling, florin. Right - Penny shilling, half crown. How much easier it was to work out decimal when the change over happened ~ I was still in Primary school. Funnily enough I still think in feet & inches and pounds & ounces though.
