    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Indeed - there's a gold Victorian sov in one tin. Is a "restrike" of a gold coin also in gold?
  2. Fake? Whatever next?

    2020 penny

    Yes, but not the current currency ones, and they are the ones that could (should) be abolished.
  4. Absolutely right - singletons of what COULD just be a misstrike are curiosities only until more turn up.

    2020 penny

    Though it's a long time since people referred to currency coins as "pennies". For years and years now they've been Trump's running mate.

    Someone should inform her that - yes, it's true! - Jane Austen actually did write Pride and Prejudice.
  7. Shooting gallery? He SHOULD be shot after the Capitol riot. Impeachment's too good for him!
  8. Somewhere. But it will take forever to dig it out!

    2020 penny

    Maybe. But it would be a shame to lose a denomination we've had for 2000 years - it's just a matter of knowing which coin to apply the name to.
  10. That's "Priti" Patel!!! Why does Gove still look like a slapped fish even as a woman? The words "bargepole" "foot" "wouldn't" "ten" "touch" "I" "it" "with" "a" come to mind.

    2020 penny

    So that's nearly 2 and a half times the value of 1p ! Even the 2p is worth less than a farthing.

    I also liked The Two Ronnies Swedish phrasebook... F U N E X ? S, V F X F U N E M ? 9. V F N 10 E M (girl walks by carrying large ham) O - U F M !! O K, V F M O K - M N X 4 2

    I'm tempted to think she - or her shill - is 3***i looking at the bids.

    2020 penny

    Yes, keep the name but apply it to something else. The original d was a denarius, a silver coin. Perhaps the 10p could become a 'penny'? Yes, they could be just in sets for the time being - the denomination could therefore be 'one pence' and not a 'penny' as such. After all, a penny has been a silver denarius, a Saxon sceat, a small medieval silver coin, a Maundy denomination, a copper trade token, several types of copper coin, then a bronze, finally a (now worthless) steel decimal 'bronze'. You do realise that the 1p is now worth less in real terms than the farthing was when demonetised in 1960?

    2020 penny

    I think they should abolish the almost worthless coppers!
