How to use "Twopenny-halfpenny" in context?
When people think of coins, sometimes the first thing that comes to mind is a penny. And although that's technically true, over the years the coin has been around in a variety of shapes and sizes. One such coin is the twopenny-halfpenny.
Originally, the twopenny-halfpenny was made up of two copper coins that were half the size of a penny. This original design fell out of popularity, so starting in 1793, the coin was redesigned to its current form- a copper penny with an alloy ring around it.
