Pre Decimal Coins

About

This jubilee marking a reign of 70 years is a perfect time for all of us to stop and reflect on how Britain has changed during that time. The pre-decimal coins in this purse demonstrate change, in more ways than one. Amongst these coins, you will find the first portrait of the young Queen. It represented a new era when it came into circulation in 1953.  This portrait, designed by artist Mary Gillick, captures the Queen wearing a laurel wreath. In 1971, just six years before the Silver Jubilee, a centuries old system of pounds, shillings and pence was replaced when Britain went decimal!

How did you feel when the new decimal coins came into circulation?
