great humor ...was this real money or just a joke ??

This was certainly real. £1 = 240 pence - 480 half pence - 960 farthings

And aren't they nice with the wren on? I have a couple somewhere...don't suppose they are collector's items yet?:)))

Imagine going to the pound shop and handing over 960 coins for one item!
