We are learning about money. We learned that New Zealand money has changed. We were lucky enough to see some coins that used to be used when Mrs Blair was a child. We compared the old money to our new coins. That's how we discovered that some of the money we don't use any more because we used to have 1 and 2 cent pieces! The coins we do use are smaller and lighter. We talked about how blind people know what each coin is by feeling the ridges along the coins.
Have you seen the old coins before?
