The notes will wear out much quicker of course, but I can't see them being withdrawn - just gradually replaced over a few years.
Am I right in thinking that pre-decimal shillings were re-used as 5p coins? Was this official or just that they were the same size/colour/weight so you could get away with it?
I found an old 10p the other day - although I used them for years it's quite surprising when you see one now how large/heavy they were.
What is the hurry?
