    How money started.

    C/U as coins are handed over. Various shots of ancient money at the British Museum. We see the coins through the reign of different sovereigns, they are compared with a modern half penny which is bigger than all of them. C/U of coin which has been cut in two, they used to do this instead of having coins of lesser value for smaller amounts. M/S of one which has been cut in four, this is 'four things', where the farthing originated from.
