happy tuppence

There was a happy little coin that had the value of two pence. It was shiny and bright, and it loved the sun. It was made in a mint, where it was stamped with the queen’s face. One day, a butcher’s boy saw the happy little coin on the street. He picked it up and said, “What a fine tuppence this is!”

His grandad said to him excitedly, “That’s a lucky coin, my boy. It’s very rare to find a tuppence like that. You should keep it safe and make a wish.”

His grandad was a retired butcher. He had worked in the same shop for many years, and he knew a lot about meat and coins. He told his grandson stories about the old days, when tuppence could buy a lot of things.ne was now 80 years old
