How much is a PonyWhat does a pony cost?
length of money
Below is a shortlist of words for cash that is not necessarily a telling rhyme, but since I am so often asked if I know anything about cash for cash rhymes, I thought I would take it here. I' ve been asked a lot where the words "monkey" and "pony" come from. Concerning a "monkey" for £500.
Once I was informed that it came from troops who returned from India, where the 500-frupe mark had a photograph of ape on it. The monkeys used the word ape for 500 pounds and when they returned to England, the adage for pound sterling was changed to mean 500 pounds. Jason Beckett, who also thinks that the 25 berry grade had a pony image on it, confirms this.
The pony comes from the period when five pounds were whitened and the costs for a horse or pony and the bridal coach and the major editions were about 25 pounds. They always said, "I'll buy the pony in white," and they said the color of the cash and the marriage.
For this reason, five fives became a pony, about as much as a marriage. Henry Charles, on the other side, thinks that the reference comes from diamonds, where a ape means 50 carat and a pony means 100 carat, altered to mean £50 and £100 respectively. Pfundnote is just an lOU.
promised to give the holder, on request, one lump of the stamp to be used. Frequently a mix of tokens did not exactly weigh one or half a lb, but often had to divide a token so that the mix of tokens weighed exactly what was needed. In order to facilitate the division of a piece of money, certain pieces were marked with a star.
As a result, a piece of money could be divided into two halves or quartered. It was compared to a starshade, the tokens were soon called "starlings", this term finally developed into what we know today as sternling. British coinage was divided into four parts, each neighbourhood was referred to as a foursome or quadruplet, this term developed into faring.
Lots of alien coin had more items to their star and their coin were divided into quavers, hence the word PACK OF EIGHT. Many of these denominations were of Spanish origins and the concept associated with these denominations was invented in the US English language, where Americans are given the terms "TWO THIS BIT" or "TWO THAT BIT".
A lot of folks think that the word "wedge" is a new term for a slang or a relatively recent one, this is not the case. Once a quarter or eighth of a quarter of a quarter has been cut into a quarter, the form has a key and that is where the word comes from. Most commonly used coins struck by the Spaniards in South America and plundered by pirates were the 8 coins of the 8 coins of the octagon.
Also, the Eight wasn't stamped correctly and seemed more like an'S', crossed out and used by Caribbean buccaneers as money, which is the source of the $ symbol. This tribe produced the coin in a solid shape, a solid mass and a solid shape and therefore could be trustworthy.
Starling " comes from the Hanseatic League, which consisted mainly of Baltic merchants, who in the Middle Ages had considerable powers over our monarchs, who were always in search of cash. The 2-Schilling bits were also called a florin because they had the same value as the Dutch florin or guilders like the bezant, which was coined in Florence in 1252 and from which the word florin was initially deduced.
Dollars come from the Czech phrase "thaler", which is derived from the second part of "Jáchymov" (Jáchymov Valley), where large amounts of copper were found and struck into coin in 1519. Thaler became the common name for coin denominations such as: Talar (Polish), Italian, Dutch, Swedish and of course Dollar.
