Interestingly, I found a way of getting around my scanner's built in protection against scanning banknotes and I uploaded a bunch of current notes, obselete notes, American notes and a 1000 Slovenian Tollar to my jigsaw file.

You can get a real good look at the notes, but you'll have to do the jigsaws first. :lol: ;)

Ooo! Pretty money guys. :D I always thought ours looked boring in comparison. We have a small collection of pre-Euro coins and bills from our honeymoon. And I have some coins and bills from Mexico from my single days. No Euros though.

Shillings are now obsolete. There used to be (before the Decimal system) 12 pennies to a shilling and 20 shillings to a pound. 10 shillings used to be worth a lot before Decimalisation. Now it is worth about 50 pence.

The newer system that we got in the 70s has 100 pennies (or pence) to a pound. A loaf of bread (at least the kind I get) costs around one pound 30 pence. I have no idea what sugar costs as I never buy any. :?

reminds me of good omens

“Two farthings = one ha’penny
Two ha’pennies = one penny
Three pennies = a thrupenny bit
Two thrupences = A Sixpence
Two Sixpences = One Shilling, or Bob
Two Bob = A Florin
One Florin and One Sixpence = Half a Crown
Four Half Crowns = Ten Bob Note
Two Ten Bob Notes = One Pound (240 pennies)
One Pound and One Shilling = One Guinea

The British resisted decimalized currency for a long time because they thought it was too complicated.”

many thanks, Sjoerd3000, ShadowNinjaCat))) your money looks unusually for me) especially South African Rands) usually, government (or who designed that) draw on money well-known people or well-known places, but on your money animals) it's amazing!) And Euros notes is more wider, that our rubls) Guldens is bright and funny)

I agree that the currency in the USA is boring looking. Currently in California a loaf of whole wheat bread costs $3.00 to $5.00 and a 5lb. bag of white sugar is just under $2.00.
Be careful what you wish for as you just might get it.
