40th anniversary of decimilisation

Today is the 40th anniversary of decimilisation, when pounds, shillings and pence, became err... pounds, shillings and pence, but in a sensible way! The National Archives has a write up on it at http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/news/540.htm

Mad how I went decimal shortly after I was born, and my kids went digital shortly after they were! :)
