'Coins of the United Kingdom - Predecimalisation' Coin Set
Steeped in tradition, Great Britain has always been a ountry that knows its own mind. Prior to decimalisation in 971 our currency was unique in the world, yet today, he old coinage of which we wereso fond has almost disappeared from our memories. Before our coins were decimalised on 1971, we were indeed able to find coins in our wallets that were dated back to the 19th century - especially theHalf Penny and Penny coins.
In the years just before decimalisation, the circulating British coins were the half crown (2/6, withdrawn 1 January 1970), two shillings or florin (2/-), shilling (1/-), sixpence (6d), threepence (3d), penny (1d) and halfpenny (1/2d). The farthing (1/4d) had been withdrawn in 1960. There was also the Crown (5/-), which was, and still is legal tender, worth 25p, but normally did not circulate.
The collection includes for example a One Crown Elizabeth II, featuring the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, the world's longest and oldest reigning monarch. Or the Farthing - one of Britain's oldest coins, minted and issued for over 700 years from as early as the 13th century and made up of a quarter of a penny.
