For anyone interested, this is a link to a video clip on the subject. It runs for 4 minutes. Remember, technology wise, this clip is over 40 yrs old!

After over 40 years it still does the job.

Now I know better about the older system :)

Thanks for the link.

Brilliant!

Now why can't every informative film be made that simple. I stink at math and that actually was done well enough that even I understand it now

Thanks

Anyone remember this song? Sung to the tune of "Click go the Shears, Mate"?

Decimal Change Over Song

In come the dollars and in come the cents
To replace the pounds and the shillings and the pence
Be prepared for change when the coins begin to mix
On the fourteenth of February 1966.

Chorus:
Clink go the coins, clink, clink, clink
Change over day is closer than you think
Learn the value of the coins and the way that they appear
And things will be much smoother when the decimal point is here.

In come the dollars and in come the cents
To replace the pounds and the shillings and the pence
Be prepared folks when the coins begin to mix
On the fourteenth of February 1966.

(Lyrics written by Ted Roberts)
