Pence is the plural of penny. There is no such thing as one pence. For the record, most English people get this wrong too, and end up hiding their indecision with "one pee".

Yup, that sentence was wrong. Fixed now though!

If most speakers of a language variety do something, it's not wrong. That's how languages work.
