Pre - decimal British coins: The old Penny, and the Sixpence (aka - the 'Tanner'). These are two examples of what our generation (and older) of British people have come to call 'REAL money'. This was the old 'Imperial' coinage that we used before decimalisation in 1971. As well as these we had other coins coins with great names, like the Farthing (a quarter penny); Ha’penny (half penny); Thrip’ny (three penny); Bob (shilling: twelve pennies); Florin (two shillings)

Farrow and Ball "BORROWED LIGHT" 235 "The name says it all. It's the palest blue that they make, and it just shimmers. When you walk into a room with white woodwork and this pale blue, you think you're in heaven. My painter went home and told his wife about it, so you know you've got a winner." -T. Keller Donovan
