The Crowning Chair in Westminster Abbey, every British King or Queen has been crowned in this chair since 1308. On close inspection the chair is covered with graffiti from the 17th and 18th century, those teenagers!!

It was really a pretty little coin: The English 6d of Oak sprigs and acorns ~ The sixpence, known colloquially as the tanner, or half-shilling, was a British pre-decimal coin, worth six (pre-1971) pence, or 1/40th of a pound sterling. The first sixpences were struck in the reign of Edward VI in 1551 and continued until they were rendered obsolete by decimalisation in 1971.
