so my new, penny-pinching philosophy tells me to carefully buy only the items i need for this one project, do the project, and clean up any extra bits. so i finally put together a display of my british coinage.
top row: elizabeth ii through the years in pennies 1-3, two pence with young elizabeth ii, older elizabeth ii and back
2nd row: 5 pence, 10 pence front and back
3rd row: king george vi, youngest elizabeth and young elizabeth (a study of canadian pennies)
4th row: 20 pence front and back
5th row: 50 pence
bottom: a study in british pounds
