What is the British Pound Sterling?

The British Pound Sterling is the official currency of the UK and its nine associated territories. The British pound is the oldest currency in circulation in the world. The symbol £ and the code GBP represents the British pound. It is also called Sterling and Pound. The Bank of England is responsible for issuing pounds, and the Royal Mint officially produces the coins, and the minor units called penny. The UK is home to internationally reputed educational institutions, multinational companies, and notable tourist attractions. These unparalleled characteristics of the UK attract a diverse range of tourists, immigrants, and students across different parts of the world. Therefore, currently, there is a strong demand for sterling. ExTravelMoney offers a money exchange service of valid pounds that efficiently covers your currency requirements.


Ways to Spot Authentic GBP

  1. On tilting the original pound horizontally, the denomination of the note, printed in words, changes to the word pound. This hologram is present at the bottom of the banknote.

  2. The metallic image in the window of an authentic pound sterling is silver on the back of all denomination notes. However, from the front view, it is golden for £5 and £10, gold and blue for £20, and gold and green for £50.

  3. All current Bank of England banknotes have raised print for words such as Bank of England. The same applies to the numerals in the bottom right corner of the £5 and £10 currencies.

  4. Under sufficient UV light, the denomination numeral on the top of the note appears in bright red and green color with a dark background.

  5. A genuine note comprises precise minute designs. Fake currencies would have them blurred or uneven.
