Whatever else I might love about the past, the old monetary systems isn’t one of them and decimilisation has never seemed like anything but a good idea. So I would be quite happy to celebrate “going decimal” with one of these original 1970s Decimalisation Posters.

These posters are from 1971 and were used to warn London Underground and bus users that they would now longer be able to use their old denominations of money. They are the genuine article, having been stored away somewhere for nearly 40 years.

Sold framed in white frame, there is currently a special offer where you can buy all three variations together for £150 or buy one for £65 (still half of the usual price). If either offer appeals, you need to visit Retrophenia to buy.
