P5a Museum on the Mound Trip

Primary 5a had a fantastic trip to the Museum on the Mound in Edinburgh last week where we learnt about the security features on notes and how anything could be used as money as long as its value had been agreed. We also learnt about the history of coins and how they were made. We even got to see Roman coins and the first Scottish coins ever used. During our visit we got to strike our very own coin and take it home.  We also learnt that next year there will be a new pound coin brought into circulation and we got to see what it will look like, so keep you’re eyes peeled for its appearance.

We hope Primary 5b have as great a time as we did on this trip today.
