Euro and pound Sterling currency information

The euro is often called the ‘common currency’ or the ‘shared currency’, because it is used by 19 different countries. All member nations of the European Union, barring Denmark and the exiting United Kingdom, are obligated to join the euro eventually when they meet certain criteria. The pound, meanwhile, is often referred to as ‘Sterling’.

The UK uses a combination of plastic and paper money, with notes in denominations of £50, £20, £10 and £5. Coins come in denominations of £2, £1, 50 pence, 20 pence, 10 pence, 5 pence, 2 pence and 1 penny. The Bank of England (BoE) issued a new design of £1 coin on the 28th of March 2017 that features twelve sides.

GBP/USD exchange rate movement

The euro and the pound are both heavily influenced by political news and domestic data from the Eurozone and the UK respectively.

The EUR/GBP pairing has also experienced notable volatility since the UK voted to leave the European Union in 2016, a move which is liable to affect the economies of both nations.
