 How many 50p pieces would you need to make up £5?

# Year 2 Money - Value of Coins

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with recognising coin values and finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amounts of money.

Children in Year 2 should be familiar with all the coins we use and their values. They should also recognise the values of different combinations, for example, that two £1 coins have the same value as a £2 coin or that two 50p coins have the same value as a £1 coin.

This quiz will help children to work out the values of different coin combinations.
