The Currency used in Britain. Pounds sterling. Made up pounds (£) and pence (p). There are 100 pennies to the pound. The actual currency (the coins and notes) go up in 1,2,5 up to £50 notes (apparently there are £100 notes but you never see them, and most shops wouldn't accept it cos they never see it so it could be faked). Most the money has a picture of the queen on, but you can also find darwin, adam smith, elgar etc.
1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2, (that's all the coins).
£5, £10, £20 (that's the notes).
Definitely not monopoly money, because it is worth twice the dollar!
I bought a bottle of vodka for £5!
Apparently if you draw on the queen on the note, it counts as treason.
The British Pound as we know it was introduced in 1971
