  • The British decimal one penny (1p) coin, usually simply known as a penny, is a unit of currency equaling one one-hundredth of a pound sterling. The penny’s symbol is p. Its obverse has featured the profile of Queen Elizabeth II since the coin’s introduction in 1971, the year British currency was decimalised. Four different portraits of the Queen have been used on the coin, with the latest design by Jody Clark being introduced in 2015. The second and current reverse, featuring a segment of the Royal Shield, was introduced in 2008. The correct plural form for multiple 1p coins is pennies (e.g. fifty pennies). The correct term for monetary amounts of pennies greater than 1p is pence (e.g. one pound and twenty pence). One penny and two pence coins are legal tender only up to the sum of 20p; this means that it is permissible to refuse payment of sums greater than this amount in 1p and 2p coins in order to settle a debt. The penny was originally minted from bronze, but since 1992 it has been minted in copper-plated steel due to the increasing price of metal. Soaring copper prices in the mid-2000s caused the value of the copper in the pre-1992 coins (which are 97% copper) to exceed the coins' face value. For example, in May 2006, the intrinsic metal value of a pre-1992 1p coin was about 1.5 pence. During 2008, the value of copper fell dramatically from these peaks. As of 31 March 2014 there were an estimated 11,278 million 1p coins in circulation, with an estimated total face value of £112.787 million. The penny is the lowest value coin in circulation in the United Kingdom. The purchasing power of previous lowest-value coins is: (en)

  • La moneta britannica decimale da un penny (1p), prodotta dalla Zecca Reale (in inglese: Royal Mint), fu istituita il 15 febbraio 1971, giorno in cui la moneta del Regno Unito fu decimalizzata (convertita al sistema decimale), ed era di fatto disponibile presso le banche già da alcune settimane, in buste da una sterlina. La moneta, nota in principio come il "nuovo penny" (inglese: new penny), era inizialmente coniata in bronzo, ma a partire dal 1992 si è cominciato a coniarla in acciaio placcato in rame. Poiché questo è meno denso del bronzo, le monete in acciaio sono diventate leggermente più spesse, oltre che attratte dai magneti. Un penny pesa 3,56 grammi e ha il diametro di 20,32 millimetri. Il penny è la centesima parte di una sterlina: 100 penny formano una sterlina.Le monete da uno e due penny sono valuta legale solo fino alla cifra di 20 penny: ciò significa che si può rifiutare che il pagamento di un debito per somme maggiori di questa cifra avvenga in monete da 1 o 2 penny. Al 30 marzo 2010 è stata calcolata una cifra complessiva di oltre 11 miliardi e 215 milioni di penny in circolazione.L'aumento vertiginoso del prezzo del rame nella metà dell'ultimo decennio ha fatto sì che il valore del rame contenuto nelle monete antecedenti il 1992 avesse superato il valore nominale delle monete: ad esempio, nel maggio 2006 il valore intrinseco di una di queste monete era di circa 1,5 penny. Nel 2008 però il valore del rame è altrettanto rapidamente sceso. (it)

Старый британский пенни, равный 1⁄240 фунта стерлингов, обозначался буквой d, поскольку официальные документы средневековой Британии велись на латыни и денежная единица называлась денарием (лат. denarius).
