PROOF THAT I'M COINING IT IN...
Over the next few days I'm going to be showering
you with money. My money. I collect certain coins and
notes, and I'm going to be sharing them with you (visually
at least) over several posts. This one's the 1970 ROYAL
MINT Proof Set, with a halfpenny that was never legal
tender as the coin was demonetised on July 31st 1969 -
making this one a bit of a collectors' item.
I've scanned these coins in their cases, so apologies
if they're not 100% in focus, but they're clear enough to
let you appreciate their individual aesthetic appeal.
Are you into old coins? Like me, do you yet regard
pre-decimal coins as real money and today's currency
as base pretenders? Tell your fellow Criv-ites in our
scintillating comments section, why don'tcha?!
