A Nigerian man reportedly donated Nigeria’s old £1 as offering during his church service

Actually, Nigeria once used foreign currencies as official money before changing to the naira notes that we have now.

A young lady Identified as @Reetah_kay on Twitter, has taken to social media to share pictures of the old ‘one pound’ Nigerian man dropped in an offering basket.

She disclosed that the currency was used between 1907 and 1973. She further wondered how that person would have kept such a currency for a very long time and then dropped it in the offering basket recently.

Her post reads:
“After Sunday service those counting the money did their work and guess what they found? ‘Nigeria’s own One Pound’ I mean ‘one pound’ used between d year 1907 and 1973… Now my question is, how did dis person manage to keep dis currency till date?”
