WATCH: These Kids Guess How Much They Could've Bought With Old Irish Money

"You could buy absolutely nothing with 10p – you could probably buy an ant"

Ah the punt, Ireland's bygone currency (that you've probably still got a jar full of somewhere at home).

With the introduction of the Euro back in 2002 we said our farewells to the Irish pound, but Dublin-based channel Youth Tuber decided to see what modern kids would make of the old coins.

These tykes were handed 10p, 20p, 50p, and £1 coins before attempting to guess how much they could buy with it (10p would've fetched you a scarf or hat, apparently).  

Watch their reactions to the outdated mulla in the video above.
