    1 shilling = 10 cents

    Kids were robbed because there were 12 pennies to a shilling so they didn't get as many lollies for 10 cents !

    Phil, you've been overdosing on the Rosella "then there was the penny ... 10 pennies = 1 bob or 1 shilling". The shilling was pre-decimal and there were 12 pennies to the shilling.

    I am currently reading Ken Follet's "World Without End" set in England in 1337 (at the moment) in the reign of Edward III. Everyone spoke in shillings and calculated in shillings which were 12 pennies or one 20th of a pound and yet at that time there were no shilling coins. "Shilling" was known from Old English, before the Norman Conquest with its value as I said, yet the first shilling coin did not appear until 1503 when it was issued by Henry VII.

    Shillings were pre decimal and 20 shillings = 1 pound, at change over in 1966 a shilling converted to 10c. The coins themselves can be worth anywhere between 10c and a 1915 shilling in good condition could be worth several thousand dollars to a collector.

    Memories huh? One bob, if you had one inyer pocket you could do all sorts. Half or 6 pence could get you into a Saturday matinee and the other half would buy so many lollies you'd be sick as a dog eating them all. Try doing all that today on 10 lousey cents. What a joke our money value has become.

    EXAMPLE. 1972 XY Ford Falcon GTHO Phase 111 Shaker. Brand new off the floor $4ooo.

    That wouldnt buy it's rear spoiler today.

    No. Ever heard of Google? The Australian dollar has been worth more than the US dollar since the GFC.
