Sing a song of sixpence..............

On this day in 1980, the British sixpence ceased to be legal tender. I remember them well - we had a Saturday sixpence each when I was wee, to do what we liked with, usually spent on the penny tray in the village shop :) I still have a couple of them, and they go in the Christmas pudding every year.
