History of British Pound

The British Pound is the oldest currency still in use today, as well as one of the most commonly converted currencies. The Pound Sterling was first introduced in the year 760 as the silver penny, which spread across the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. The design of the coin was changed in 1158. And instead of using pure silver the new coins were made from 92.5% silver and came to be known as the Sterling Pound.

The use of these Silver pennies continued till 1487 when the shilling was introduced and the pound came into existence two years later, in 1489. The first paper notes were introduced in 1694, with their legal basis being switched from silver to gold. The Bank of England, one of the first central banks in the world, was established a year later, in 1695. All Sterling notes were handwritten until 1855 when the bank began to print whole notes.
