    The currency sign for the pound is £, which is usually written with a single cross-bar (as on modern banknotes exclusively since 1975). A variation with a double cross-bar (₤) has been used intermittently with £ since the earliest banknotes of 1725 when both were used.

    The sym­bol de­rives from the upper case Latin let­ter L, rep­re­sent­ing libra pondo, the basic unit of weight in the Roman Em­pire, which in turn is de­rived from the Latin word, libra, mean­ing scales or a bal­ance. The pound be­came an Eng­lish unit of weight and in Eng­land be­came de­fined as the tower pound (equiv­a­lent to 350 grams) of ster­ling sil­ver. Ac­cord­ing to the Royal Mint Mu­seum: How­ever, the sim­ple let­ter L, in lower- or up­per­case, was used to rep­re­sent the pound ster­ling in printed books and news­pa­pers until well into the 19th century. In the black­let­ter type used until the sev­en­teenth century, the let­ter L is ren­dered as L{\\displaystyle {\\mathfrak {L}}}.

    The pound sign is placed be­fore the num­ber (e.g., £12,000) and sep­a­rated from the fol­low­ing dig­its by no space or only a thin space.

    Canadian English

    In Cana­dian Eng­lish the sym­bols £ and # are both called the pound sign, but the # is also known as the 'num­ber sign' and as the 'noughts-and-crosses board'.[a]

    US English

    In Amer­i­can Eng­lish, the term "pound sign" usu­ally refers to the sym­bol #(num­ber sign), and the cor­re­spond­ing tele­phone key is called the "pound key".

    Double bar style

    Ban­knotes is­sued by the Bank of Eng­land since 1975 have only used the sin­gle bar style as a pound sign. The Bank used both the two-bar style (₤) and the one-bar style (£) (and some­times a fig­ure with­out any sym­bol what­ever) more or less equally since 1725 until 1971, in­ter­mit­tently and some­times concurrently.

    In the Uni­code stan­dard, the sym­bol £ is called POUND SIGN, and the sym­bol ₤ is the LIRA SIGN. These have re­spec­tive code points: 1. U+00A3 £ POUND SIGN (HTML £ · £ · inherited from Latin-1) 2. U+20A4 ₤ LIRA SIGN (HTML ₤) Uni­code notes that the "lira sign" is not widely used and was added due to both it and the pound sign being avail­able on HP print­ers, and also states that the pre­ferred sign for lira is the pound sign. The en­cod­ing of the £ sym­bol in po­si­tion xA3 was first stan­dard­ised by ISO Latin-1 in 1985. Po­si­tion xA3 was used by the Dig­i­tal Equip­ment Cor­po­ra­tion VT220 ter­mi­nal, Mac OS Roman, the Am­strad CPC, the Com­modore Amiga and the Acorn Archimedes. Many early com­put­ers (lim­ited to a 7-bit, 128-po­si­tion char­ac­ter set) used a vari­ant of ASCII with one of the less-fre­quently used char­ac­ters re­placed by the £. The UK na­tional vari­ant of ISO 646 was stan­dard­ised as BS 4730 in 1985. This code was iden­ti­cal to ASCII ex­cept for two...


    Type­writ­ers pro­duced for the British mar­ket in­cluded a "£" sign from the ear­li­est days, though its po­si­tion var­ied widely.

    The logo of the UK In­de­pen­dence Party, a British po­lit­i­cal party, is based on the pound sign, sym­bol­is­ing the party's op­po­si­tion to adop­tion of the euro and to the Eu­ro­pean Uniongen­er­ally. A sym­bol that ap­pears to be a dou­ble-barred pound sign is used as the logo of the British record label Par­lophone. In fact this is a stylised ver­sion of a black­let­ter L (L{\\displaystyle {\\mathfrak {L}}}), stand­ing for Lind­ström (the firm's founder Carl Lind­ström).

    The pound or pound-mass is a unit of mass used in British imperial and United States customary systems of measurement. Various definitions have been used; the most common today is the international avoirdupois pound, which is legally defined as exactly 0.45359237 kilograms, and which is divided into 16 avoirdupois ounces. The international standard symbol for the avoirdupois pound is lb; an alternative symbol is lbm, #, and ℔ or ″̶. The unit is descended from the Roman libra. The...

    The word 'pound' and its cognates ultimately derive from a borrowing into Proto-Germanic of the Latin expression lībra pondō, in which the word pondō is the ablative singular of the Latin noun pondus.

    The United States and countries of the Commonwealth of Nations agreed upon common definitions for the pound and the yard. Since 1 July 1959, the international avoirdupois pound has been defined as exactly 0.45359237 kg. In the United Kingdom, the use of the international pound was implemented in the Weights and Measures Act 1963. The yard or the metre shall be the unit of measurement of length and the pound or the kilogram shall be the unit of measurement of mass by reference to which any measur

    Historically, in different parts of the world, at different points in time, and for different applications, the pound has referred to broadly similar but not identical standards of mass or force.

    Smoothbore cannon and carronades are designated by the weight in imperial pounds of round solid iron shot of diameter to fit the barrel. A cannon that fires a six-pound ball, for example, is called a six-pounder. Standard sizes are 6, 12, 18, 24, 32 and 42 pounds; 68-pounders also exist, and other nonstandard weapons use the same scheme. See carronade. A similar definition, using lead balls, exists for determining the gauge of shotguns.
