is called a shilling, but it is
worth a little less than one
krona (about 85 ore).
The penny (worth about 7
ore), the half-penny (3 l/2 ore),
and the farthing (*/4 penny)
are copper coins (coppers).
Twelve pennies are equal to
(make) a shilling.
The shilling is a silver coin.
Other silver coins are the
threepenny piece, the
sixpence, the florin or two-shilling
piece and the half-crown. The
half-crown is worth two
shillings and sixpence. — How
can you tell a florin from
half-a-crown? —A two-shilling piece
or florin has a cross on the
back, a half-crown has a shield.
Look well at your change
when you pay with
half-a-crown, so that they don’t
give you change for a florin.
The sovereign or pound, and
the half-soverign or ten-shilling
piece are gold coins. There are
twenty shillings in a pound.
Nowadays you seldom see a
gold coin. Bank notes are
used instead: ten-shilling notes,
one-pound notes, five-pound
notes and ten-pound notes.
Instead of writing three
pounds five shillings and
sixpence, one writes £ 3 5 s. 6 d.
(or £ 3—5—6). £ stands for
