    I suppose that the Guinea became defunct when decimalisation arrived in 1971 - I am surprised that Australia didn't even keep the pound when they went decimal (in 1966?) instead of adopting the dollar.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Australia decimalised by introducing the Dollar worth 10 shillings, which was one idea the UK considered for decimalisation, but wanted to keep the pound at the same value.

    I was still at school when decimalisation came in !!

    We went into the local shop to buy sweets/toffees before school with the new coins snd were shocked when we came out with about half as many sweets !!
