The last ever Thru'penny Bit
On 15th February 1971, Britain went decimal. Gone forever were our much-loved crowns, shillings, and pence - no longer were there 240 pence in a pound. Today, the old coinage of which we were so fond has almost disappeared from our memories. Whether you remember the good old pre-decimal days with affection or are looking to share the fascination of coin collecting with friends, family or even future generations, The Changing Faces of British Coinage Set is an eternal reminder of a time when our currency was unique in the world.
