The Bank of England lists the £5 note as “blue / green”

https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/banknotes/current-banknotes

Call it a draw. The old one was all green. I should know @LFEE :blush: New does have both colours on.



Loads of blue.

I can remember ten bob notes :mick:

:lol: Probably find Cleopatra coins in old jackets.

f*** you, Mike. Haven't said that for a while, you Scouse scum. :lol:

All that pounds, shillings and pence guff, was so pleased when we decimalised. Me mam was a bit of a hoarder, came from growing up in WWII, that other one you were late for, she liked things that were shiny and different, so she kept a farthing, a silver threepence and a groat to show us bairns. The acorn doesn't fall far from the tree, I've got them upstairs to show the grandkids if they ever give a f*** about history.

:) As you were.

Threepence is self-explanatory and I've heard of farthings in, like, Dickens or something, but what the absolute f*** is a groat?

I remember Half-crowns, tanners, threepenny bits (phwoar) and farthings ffs.

:lol: Thrupenny bits = Eartha Kitts, aye, phwoar indeed. Florins? Farthings went out before I was born, like, she just kept one to show us. I feel like I lived through the Middle Ages here.

:lol: Blackjacks and Refreshers 4 a penny for me. FML. Seem to remember Blackjacks being packaged in a refreshingly racist 1960s way too. :( I was 7, not involved.

When you get fat every part of you gets bigger except your dick. Seems a bit unfair.

At a certain point you're surely too fat for the knob benefits to be worthwhile or effective. There has to be a tipping point.
