Exchange English Pound Banknotes

The English pound was born in around 775AD during the reign of King Offa of Mercia and was the main currency in Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. The English pound is over 1200 years old. The official currency of the United Kingdom it has earned the title of the oldest currency still in use today. The Bank of England first issued and minted banknotes during the Napoleonic and Revolutionary wars and the pound became legal tender.

Across many centuries the English pound has seen many different variations and is one of the strongest currencies in the world today. English pounds are also legal tender in Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. In 1855 minted banknotes were in the following denominations £5, £10, £20, £50, £100, £200, £300, £500 and £1000. Over the years the Bank of England issued and minted English pound banknotes and slowly withdrew the higher valued banknotes. Today English pound (GBP) banknotes currently in circulation are £5, £10, £20 and £50.
