“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.”

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.
