I could remember vividly back in the days when we use these lovely naira notes and coins in small denominations and they had more value than the bogus notes we have today?

Oh, my precious 5kobo that I used to buy buns and ice-cream in 1981. That in itself was a huge motivation to use in going to school then; the break time goodies! cheesy cheesy cheesy

yes, late nineties

When i was in primary school and you go to school with 50 kobo, your case will be reported to the headmaster/mistress. The headmaster/mistress will ask you parents to come and explain if they gave you the 50 kobo.

With 10kobo you be ajebota be dat, and with 5kobo u go eat rice & meat, and still get change for 1 ice cream.

The 1 naira that was printed same time with the 50 Kobo note posted by stagger is not here. The one naira above was issued by CBN in 1979.

Days when our money had value. Not today that pound and dollar are messing up are currency big time. Even our legislooters transact their businesses in these foreign currencies.

I am going to visit me granny soon, I am sure she still has those coins stashed somewhere in one of those black and red metal boxes.

I remember when I stumbled on my mum's money. They were about 5 bundles of 20 Naira notes(highest denomination then), 10 bundles of 5 Naira notes and about 10 bundles of mixed 1 Naira and 50 kobo notes. I took only 4 notes of 50 kobo(N2). I went out with my friends painting the town red with kulikuli and sugar cane with only 50 kobo. grin Some people reported me to my mum, who promptly ordered some hefty men to bundle me back home. Thereafter, I was given a beating of my life. Well I took solace in the fact that I have N1:50K left to do big boy for the rest of the week. grin
