The Pound Sterling is the currency of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland since the Anglo-Saxon era. The name pound derives from Latin pondus, meaning ‘weight’. The Old English pound was a unit of weight, initially equated with the Ancient Roman weight called libra, which explains why the monetary sign in English is still ‘£’, the letter ‘L’ as the initial of libra.
