Not to be confused with the older GBP -/1 Shilling.

The Penny is worth one hundredth of a pound. They are used today, although they are hated by most people.


The design depicts a crowned portcullis with sloping chains. Because of the end of pre-decimalization, in 1971-1981 an inscription curving over the crown reads New Penny, though this was changed to One Penny after the 10 years.

A newer design exists with the left portion of the Royal Shield of the UK.
