The British halfpenny coin was worth 1/480th of a pound sterling. At first in its 700-year history it was made from silver but as the value of silver increased, the coin was made from base metals. It was finally abandoned in 1969 as part of the process of decimalising the British currency. "Halfpenny", colloquially written ha'penny, was pronounced /ˈheɪpəni/ HAY-pə-nee; "1 ½d" was spoken as a penny ha'penny /əˈpɛniˈheɪpni/ or three ha'pence /θriːˈheɪpəns/.
