... the UK was still using (Sterling) pounds, shillings and pence until March 1971 if memory serves me right. Same thing though: the UK pound was divided into twenty shillings, and each of those shillings was divided into twelve pennies.
Below that, the currency was binary, with each penny having two halfpence, and up 'til about 1955 each halfpenny being further divisible into two farthings. (The ha-penny was still a feature of the UK decimal currency until the early nineties.)
