Grand_Admiral_Thrawn Posted February 2, 2005 Share Posted February 2, 2005 I've recently taken a liking to a series of novels set in the late 18th/early 19th century that focusses on the the British Navy of the time (Patric O'Brian's Maturin/Aubrey novels). There is, however, a concept that I am getting a little lost on, however, and I was hoping someone could explain this for me. There is much talk of money, and I can't quite keep up with it, since I have no idea what order the currency denominations progress in. I am assuming that a Guinea is the largest denominations (with a value of One pound and one shilling), but I also know that they haven't been issued since 1813. So, if some one could please explain to me how this all works I would be most obliged. History is on the move, Captain. Those who cannot keep up with it will be left behind, to watch from a distance. And those who stand in our way will not watch at all."- ”Grand Admiral Thrawn" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
