pence coin sparks confusion

The British peyton manning l jersey public have already got accustomed to the new 5p and 10p coins introduced last year. There are still three coins left to come the 2p worth 4.8d, 1p (2.4d) and half pence (1.2d).

One Londoner told the Evening News he accidentally left a Authentic Jimmy Graham Jersey 50p coin in a saucer full of 10ps as a tip for a waiter.

"Fortunately the waiter was dead honest and told me. But I suspect there'll be a lot of cases where that doesn't happen," he said.

The DCB has stockpiled 120 million 50 pence coins at banks around the country ready for today's introduction of the coin, making it the largest ever issue of a new coin.

Lord Fiske said the reason for this was to replace the 200 million ten bob notes as soon as possible.

He said the issue would eventually save the Treasury money. "The note is being replaced primarily on economic grounds. A 10s note has a life of some five months and the costs of distribution and withdrawal are comparatively high.

"Although a 50p coin will cost more to produce initially, it should have a life of at least 50 years and the metal will subsequently be recoverable."

But many people were unhappy with the new addition to their purses and pockets.

The introduction of the 50p coin prompted retired Army colonel Essex Moorcroft to form the Anti Heptagonists who objected to the coin as "ugly" and "an insult to our sovereign whose image it bears".

Members of Parliament joined shopkeepers, bus workers, housewives and the elderly protesting the coin was too similar to the 10 pence piece.

A survey carried out by the British Market Research Bureau on D Day itself showed 12% of the 1,040 questioned thought money had been unfairly converted, but the majority were satisfied with pricing.

Secret British Government documents published on the 30th anniversary of decimalisation revealed the concerns the Decimal Currency Board had about the changeover.
