Famously issued to the joe public by the Ministry of Food during WW2 to the early 1950s since coins were used for the metal supply as part of the war effort. Not only these coupon books were used to buy food but also clothing, furniture, sex toys etc.

With Gordon Brown in charge, fully expect that it wont be long till we are issued pocket money and ration coupons while that cnut taxes us at 99%.
