    Because its one more penny.

    This is due to the fact that first decimal coins were introduced in 1968. Prior to 1968, 12 pennies were equal to a shilling, and 20 shillings to a pound. The new 5 pence and 10 pence coins introduced in 1968 held the values of 1 shilling and 2 shillings respectively, resulting in 100 pence to the pound rather than 240.

    Because $19.68 is worth more than $19.67

    Gabriel had the solution first and is today’s winner! $19.68 is more than $19.67.
    Anant thank you for the history lesson, and I didn’t realize that the riddle had a second complex answer regarding British currency.
