Rabbit Trail: British Money

Estimated Time: 15 minutes

British money may seem a little confusing to those of us who live outside the UK, but in the time Mary Poppins was written it was extremely complicated to understand.

You may have heard of pounds or pence before. In this video the narrator explains this currency in more detail.

More recently the British money system changed to make a little more sense to those of us "across the pond." This video discusses current money denominations and some of the slang words used to describe it.

Have you ever used money from another country? If so, what type of money was it?
