A Farthing? A Sixpence or a Shilling?







Dec .7th 2010
A Farthing for your thoughts,
Nope it sounds better as a penny.














Planing a trip to England


TEN U.S. DOLLARS is worth about 6.38 POUNDS

Check the currency rate on the internet before the trip.,
Well when I traveled the currency was always confusing.















I wish someone had helped me to understand.













I Knew a pound note only.





Tried to keep track of the paper money.

figured a crown was more because it was bigger.



OH well. I had a good time,except for the food.
In Ireland and England it was very bland.
I made up for it in Paris and Italy.
































A pound ==1/20 shillings


or 1/240 Pence



or 1/960 Farthing
Confused?? How about this::



A Bob is a Quid


A quid is a Quinea


a Quinea -a farthing







Have You got it?


OK I gather a sixpence is a half shilling
and 1/40 of a pound.
Sixpence is a lucky charm,
put into a christmas pudding
and worn in left shoe for luck.











































Couldn't figure this out?? What a beautiful coin.
























Maybe wrong but, a florin is 1/10 of a pound

a farthing is probably less than a US penny.
a Farthing is also said to be a fourth of a quarter??????


I feel like it's double talk.














Seventy Three years ago Elizabeth became a Queen
I just found out the Commonwealth of England
includes 53 countries. WOW!
