The pre-decimal penny (1d) was a coin worth 1/240 of a pound sterling, or one twelfth of a shilling. Its symbol was d, from the Roman denarius. It was a continuation of the earlier English penny, and in Scotland it had the same monetary value as one pre-1707 Scottish shilling. The penny was originally minted in silver, but from the late 18th century it was minted in copper, and then after 1860 in bronze. This version of the penny was made obsolete in 1971 by decimalisation, and was replaced by the decimal penny, worth 2.4 old pence.

A abreviatura usada ao se escrever quantias em pence antigo era d (do latim denário; assim, três pence antigos eram escritos como 3d. O valor de um pêni antigo era de 1/240 de uma libra. Esta moeda era substancialmente maior em tamanho do que o centavo dos Estados Unidos ou Canadá, embora tivesse um valor semelhante devido à desvalorização da libra esterlina em 1949.
  • Il Penny (abbreviato d., dal latino denarius fu una moneta pre-decimale britannica, quella dalla vita più lunga, essendo stata coniata per la prima volta sotto i sovrani anglo-sassoni nel VII secolo e fino al 1970. Dal 1971 viene coniata una moneta decimale dall'identico nome e valore, la quale però è inserita in un sistema decimale dove 100 pence formano una sterlina, mentre in precedenza ogni sterlina era suddivisa in 20 scellini, ciascuno del valore di 12 pence, pertanto erano necessari 240 pence per formare una sterlina.
