Sterling

One of the things that is taking some getting used to is the new currency.  In the UK they use a lot more coinage – and it is in different denominations.  I’ve pretty much got it figured out, but their 5 pence piece is almost exactly the same size as a US dime, that one is going to take a while to retrain the brain for.
