Note - Paper Bank Notes
We are in the process of replacing all our paper bank notes with new polymer notes, (images available near the end of this page.) Old paper £5 and £10 notes have already been withdrawn. We expect paper £20 and £50 to be phased out shortly after their polymer replacements are released.
 
UK Coins and Bank Notes
The currency used in Pembrokeshire is the "Pound Sterling" (English Pound) this has the symbol £ or GBP
There are 100 "Pence" in each Pound. (1 Penny = £0.01, 100 Pence = £1) The penny has the symbol p but this is often omitted.
It is worth noting that banknotes issued outside of England/Wales may not be accepted by Pembrokeshire traders.

Notes
Some local establishments prefer contactless payments to cash.
 
High value (especially the £50) banknotes can cause problems for small traders. They could be rejected or cause checkout delays.
 
We are not in the Euro Zone. Most outlets will not accept foreign currencies and those that do may offer a very poor exchange rate.
Most banks, larger post offices and some travel agents provide a currency exchange service but you may be asked for proof of identity.
Exchanges may advertise a 0% commission but it is still worth shopping around because the exchange rates vary.
 
Scottish and Northen Ireland Currency
These countries, which are part of the United Kingdom issue their own bank notes. Scotland/Northern Ireland notes are "legal" in Pembrokeshire but they are not "Legal Tender." This means that shops in England and Wales "may" decide to accept them but they can refuse them. Banks are more likely to accept these notes than small shops.
 
It is very unusual to see Scottish or Northern Ireland notes in Pembrokeshire, hence, they are often treated with suspicion.
