Count the coins in the piggy
bank. How many two-pence coins are
there? How many two-pound coins are
In this question, we’re shown a
piggy bank which is full of coins. And we’re asked to count the
number of two-pence coins and the number of two-pound coins. We need to be very careful when
we’re looking at the writing on the coins. We’re looking for two-pence and
two-pound coins. The word two is written on the
back of a two-pence coin and the two-pound coin.
To make sure we don’t get
confused, we need to look carefully at each coin. The two-pound coin is slightly
bigger than the two-pence coin, and it’s made from two different-colored
metals. Another way we can identify a
two-pound coin is by its design. On the back of the two-pound
coin, there’s a picture of Britannia. Britannia is used as a symbol
of Great Britain. She wears a helmet; she carries
a spear and a shield. And the design on the back of a
two-pence coin is a lion.
Let’s start by counting the
two-pence coins. There’s one, two, three. We counted three two-pence
coins. Let’s count the two-pound coins
now. One, two. We counted two two-pound
coins. There are three two-pence coins
and two two-pound coins.
