notes from a small island

Money

This is a genuine, spendable, coin - it is a Manx crown dated 1979, and so worth 25p as actual money - although I think now I could sell it for about £10.00 or so.

Note the word millennium - it is celebrating not the beginning of the 21st century, but the 1,000 year anniversary of our parliament, the Tynwald.
