There were 12 Pennies in a Shilling, and 20 Shillings in a Pound. A shilling at time of decimalisation was worth 5p

The old British monetary system had 20 shillings to the pound and 12 pence to the shilling. So it was, alternatively, worth 1/20 of a pound, or 12d.

There have always been 12 Pence to the Shilling since the Shilling was first introduced.

One Shilling GBP in 1847 had the purchasing power of about £3.00 GBP today.

One Shilling GBP in 1941 had the purchasing power of about £1.65 GBP today.
