It was always weird for me; a "three" item in a decimal system, as ten can not be divided by three.
Most of the money units are of 1, 2, 5 and their multiples.
OK, on the one of weirdest part of the world:
Doesn't count sixpence, halfcrown, farthing, (I hope it is nothing to do with farting), halfpenny (one four-hundred-and-eightieth of a pound sterling), and guinea (to mean an amount of one pound and one shilling (21 shillings) or one pound and five pence in decimalised currency)
THAT units have outlasted. Kirtland Bank's ones didn't.
