A History of the Pound

We are delighted to feature this post from the Money Matters Team at Sainsbury’s Bank.

The British Pound is the oldest currency in use today. Originally forged from pure silver, it has a fascinating history but is it still as valuable?

From its birth in 760, the Pound has shaped the way we live our lives.  Not only has it improved our opportunities to travel, it is the 4th most traded currency and is still established as one of the most valuable currencies in the world.
