1960s Money

Buying things in the 60s you might need some of these.

A Penny, Half Penny, Three Pence, A shilling, A sixpence and a Half Crown.

The black coin at the bottom on the right is a Farthing and ceased to be legal tender on the 30th December 1960 (Over 50 years ago!).

But i had forgotten how heavy coins like these were. The Half Crown should have been named the half pound, and was the size of a small plate!. Three of them in your pocket and you'd be walking around with your pants hanging off your arse showing half your undies.

Come to think of it that would probably be fashionable nowadays anyway.
