Oddly enough it works out at £88.88p . Try it urself if you dont believe me ... and don't forget like most people do, the £2 coin!"


  1. Never seen the £100. It's only issued by the Scottish and Northern Irish banks, anyway. And they obviously don't count :P
    And the £5 coin isn't in general circulation, being only produced for a couple of special occasions, so it doesn't really count.

  2. I just looked it up on wikipedia.
    There was briefly a 25p coin, and there are 1/2pences (which I've seen), and 3 and 4 pences (which I haven't.) They're all legal tender, even though some of the 3 and 4 pences date back to 1822!
    On top of that, they were apparently considering making a quarter pence coin. Talk about worthless!

    I have a bag full of half pennies. Are they worth anything ? I also have a six-pence somewhere.
