The pound sterling (GBP) can be given in change using any number of coins from 1 to 100 except 3 using the standard coins £1, 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. (The two pound coin and five pound coin are irrelevant, and the 25p coin is not seen any more.)
1: £1
2: 2 at 50p
4: 50p, 2 at 20p, 10p
5: 5 at 20p
6 - 10: replace 1 at 20p with 2 at 10p each time
(10: 10 at 10p)
11: 20p, 6 at 10p, 4 at 5p
12: 8 at 10p, 4 at 5p
