Heading to England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland? Brill! Then you're going to need some pound sterlings - or some quids as the Brits like to say!
The pound is the oldest currency in the world that is still in use - and it's been in continuous usage since it was launched. Isn't that just the bee's knees!
And besides being the official currency of the United Kingdom, it's also the currency used in Jersey, Guernsey, the Isle of Man, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, the British Antarctic Territory, Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands and a few more.
So before you say "cheerio" and get on the big jet plane to any of these places, make sure you exchange your AUD for GBP online or at your nearest Travel Money Oz store.
The pound is subdivided into 100 pence (pennies), and while we won't be able to give you any of those, we can give you a range of banknote denominations to set you off on your trip with a variety of quid.
Pence & pounds - 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, 50p, £1, £2
Pounds - £5, £10, £20, £50, £100
