Shilling (Royal Mint)

Larger image

Redenominated as 5p coins, shillings remained in use for almost 20 years after 'D-Day' before being withdrawn when the new, smaller 5p coin was introduced in 1990. Before decimalisation, though, a shilling, or 'bob' as it was also known, would have got you 12 pennies, or one-twentieth of a pound.

According to the Royal Mint Museum, one of these coins would be worth around 57.5p in today's money.
