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)
1928 Australian Sixpence - Australia's currency was based on the British system of Pounds, Shillings & Pence until 14th Feb 1963 when the change to decimal currency and Dollars & Cents were introduced.
