Old coins and old days

Just found a box of Old Coins. English mainly, a few US cents, a 5 peseta piece. |
It got me wondering just how much in total of old English currency is sitting countrywide. You must have some!
My oldest is an 1836 silver threepenny but I have a few silver threepences and sixpences and lots of florins,pennies, halfpennies and farthings from Queen Vic plus a variety of stuff inc "proper" threepenny bits from Queen Elizabeth and her Dad.
Nothing special. Nothing valuable just keepsakes!
Do you remember in the 40's when you ran a message for a few pennies. Or your Dad or uncle gave you a threepenny bit.....you were "minted" as the children say now......happy days
