Money 1986

The 20p coin was introduced to Ireland in 1986 
A small batch of 20p coins were minted  & dated in 1985 to test in vending machines,some of these coins that managed to make their way into circulation are very rare and sought after by coin collectors willing to pay large sums for them.Check in the back of that old drawer maybe you could be the lucky owner of one date marked 1985!

 

WHAT WE BOUGHT IN 1986

This is what a bag of  Tayto Crisps looked like in 1986 although this is an older photo the bag didn't change for years. In 1986 a bag of Tayto Crisps cost around 20p (Irish punt) There was no foil pack and they had a simpler stronger taste which was magic when you got a fresh bag.

ICE CREAM

                          Do you remember cooling off with a Calippo


DRINKS 1986 : Ritz Cider was all the rage and cost £1.25 (Irish Punt)

COMPUTERS 1986

1986: Amstrad  launched its first low-cost PC.The 1512 was  a great success here in Ireland.
