          *that's 12.5p for the uninitiated... a lot of money in 1924.
          30p, surely? Enough for a holiday abroad, back then.

            30p is 6/- (six shillings).

            25p is 5/- (five shillings). A crown.

            10p is two shillings, 2/-, a florin.

            12.5p is two shillings and sixpence. A.K.A. half a crown... luvley coins...

            3d is a threepenny bit.

            6d is a sixpence.

            4d is a groat.

            10/- is ten shillings or 10 bob.

            1 shilling = 12 olde worlde pennies
            2s 6d = 30 olde worlde pennies. Or are you applying some ancient, early 1970s conversion rate? Grandad lizard.
