About the Sterling Pound

The Sterling Pound is the official currency of the United Kingdom, composed by Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland. Its ISO 4217 code is GBP and is represented by the symbol £. Every pound is divided into 100 pence.

History of the currency of United Kingdom

In Anglo-Saxon England (V. century-XI. century) there was a monetary unit called Pound. The name came from because when weighed it came to a pound of silver and was divided into 240 pence. In XII century it began to be manufactured with sterling silver. This is how it got its second name.

February 15th 1971 was known as the "Decimal Day" and was the day the currency decimalized, a pound had gone from 240 pence to 100 pence worth, and so it has remained ever since.

Notes and coins of Sterling Pound

The Pound banknotes from the Bank of England are 5, 10, 20 and 50 Pounds. In the obverse of the notes appears the image of the Queen and on the back we can see different characters of history: Winston Churchill, Jane Austen, Adam Smith and  Matthew Boulton.

From 2017 the paper note of 5 Pounds is not valid and we can only accept the note of polymer with the image of Winston Churchill. The note of 10 Pounds in polymer with the portrait of Jane Austen saw the light in September 2017 and since April 2018 the old 10 paper note is not valid.
