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)

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.
