Old money converter - decimal to £sd

In the old pounds, shillings and pence system, there were 20 shillings in a pound and 12 pence in a shilling. A penny was divided into two halfpennies or four farthings. Two farthings made one halfpenny. The UK's original decimal currency allowed halfpennies, so you can optionaly add a halfpenny in this converter.
