5 Shillings GBP in 1820 had the purchasing power of about £15.04 GBP today.

5 Shillings GBP in 1820 had the purchasing power of about $24.78 USD today.

Answer
Estimating the modern value of money is a prior era is a very imprecise process and very different answers can be obtained, depending on the methods used to make the estimate.

According to the Measuring Worth Calculator (see related links), 5 shillings in 1820 was worth about 16.83 2008 GBP if you use a retail price index to make the estimate. However, if you compare using average earnings, 5 shillings in 1820 would be worth about 189.94 GPB in 2008 currency.

To find out how old you are to this day (05/10/12), simply take the current date (2012) and subtract the original date (1820) from the original date. For this example, the answer comes out to be 192. Of course, if you were born in 1820, you would not be alive today.
