Quote from: <k> on January 28, 2018, 01:06:57 AMIn the UK, our oldest circulating coins are the 1p and 2p, and those minted before 1982 (1971 to 1981) still have the legend "NEW PENCE" - the only circulating coins that do so, even though they are now very old and hardly new.
Quote from: FosseWay on May 07, 2018, 03:22:19 PMI think you're on stronger ground regarding the shillings and florins because they carry a completely different denomination, though I'm not sure there actually was any significant evidence that people were confused between 1968 and 1992 by their presence.
