You mean there are people aged 15 or younger who still know how to read?

A child also thinks 2x50p pieces are worth more than a 1 coin.

Yep.

Give them a pound coin and they're happy, give them five 20p coins and they're ecstatic.

Seen a few fights because one got "more" than the other in this way.

And if you give an adult a gold coin that turns out to be chocolate wrapped in tin foil, they will be disappointed. If you give a child a gold coin and it turns out to be solid gold the child will be disappointed.
