A Deep Dive On Pounds

One of the oldest currencies in the entire world, British Pounds date back to the 8th century and are the 4th most traded currency in the foreign exchange market.

The first decimal coins were introduced in 1968. In 2016, the polymer £5 note was introduced, making for a stronger, safer, longer lasting note.

Today, the bills in circulation for British Pounds are £5, £10, £20, and £50 notes, although £50 are quite uncommon.
