Old coins and legal tender

I know the old coins such as florins and shillings are no longer legal
tender, but can they still be exchanged at a bank for decimal money?
Thanks,
Roland.

I have a huge box of coins, the wonderful 14 sided theepenny-bits, tanners, farthings, Maundy threepences and some (rather rusting!) £5 coins.

My grandmother (in her old age) was found trying to pay a hairdresser using gold sovreigns. The hairdresser refused to accept them as she thought they were worthless foreign coins and granny was indignant.
I also have a box of old UK coins that I don't know how to dispose of. Robert

I guess you are not going to the bank with them!
You could try ebay but the postage cost of such a heavy lot may put off most.
What are those 5 coins then?
Roland.
